Abstract:

The following report describes the results obtained from three Radio Drogues placed about 140 miles South of the Bermuda Islands in June 1962. The current flow plotted was at a depth of 1000 meters. A total of 2,460 miles of track was realized by periodic location of each drogue by aircraft over a period of four months. The main circulation feature described is an eddy that covers approximately 60,000 square miles.
