Abstract

A topographic feature on the continental slope off Charleston at 32 °N persistently deflects the Gulf Stream seaward, with the inshore surface thermal front deflected east or south of east in 27 of the 39 cases examined. Meanders often form downstream of the deflection, suggesting that the "Charleston bump" induces Gulf Stream fluctuations.
