The spread of positions of the Gulf Stream as exhibited in fig. I of the paper by FUGLISTER and WORTHINGTON (1951) published in this issue of Tellus suggests that one should be able to compute a rough value of the lateral eddy diffusivity produced by the meandering and shifts of position of the stream, although the number of points a t any section, taken across the stream at any distance along the axis of the stream is quite small for statistical purposes.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1951.tb00774.x
