Abstract
In the left margin of the Gulf Stream, looking in the direction of flow, a narrow discontinuous band of relatively cold water is often found. This has been attributed by upwelling from the colder depths of the ocean, but recent investigations throw doubt on this explanation. Evidence is given that the only cold low salinity source is the so-called Shelf water, which is found in a broad band between the shore and a boundary off the Continental Shelf.
