Title: Evidence for a Countercurrent Beneath the Florida Current: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Robert J. Hurley

Article Type: Meeting abstract


About 60 per cent of the area shown in photographs taken at the axis of Florida Straits exhibit well defined current ripple marks. These ripples indicate a flow of water of at least .23 to .59 kts. from the north. This current is in the opposite direction from the surface currents of 2 to 4 or more knots.
