Acoustic Doppler Current Profiles from transects across the continental margin, from 34 degrees N to 51 degrees N during the summer of 1995, were analyzed. A subsurface undercurrent was observed in 86 of 110 sections with speed greater than 5 cmsecond and thickness greater than 100 m at 200 m. The mean poleward flow was 20 cmsecond. The data suggest continuity of the undercurrent over the entire latitude and range.
