During a synoptic hydrocast survey in September 1993 near the Aleutian Islands, net northward flow of Alaskan Stream water occurred through deep passes near 180 and 172W. This inflow (≈4 × 106 m3 s−1) was the source of the eastward flow in the Bering Sea north of the islands. The eastward flow, however, was weaker and more convoluted than the stream flow (≈7 × 106 m3 s−1, referred to 1000 db) south of the islands.
