Comparatively detailed current meter array observations of a dynamically interesting region of the ocean have been reported recently (Luyten, 1977; Thompson, 1977). This note will discuss a simple interpretation of the Reynolds stresses and mean currents reported, namely that the Reynolds stress convergences drive the countercurrents as well as the Gulf Stream.
