Two-layer and continuous models of the Gulf Stream and one-layer and continuous models of the Cromwell Current, respectively, are developed from theoretical considerations. Numerical results obtained from computer solutions of these models are compared with observed data and are found to show reasonably good agreement. The limitations of the modeling are set forth.
