By means of the equation of continuity, in the area chosen for the study, the divergence at each quadruple of square degree of latitude and longitude has been computed from the average surface currents, separately for all the four seasons and also for the whole year. On the righthand side of the axis of the Gulf Stream there seems to be a rather continuous area of divergence. This is shown to be consistent with the vorticity equation.
