The Gulf Stream is said to be about fifty miles in breadth, the depth 1000 feet and its mean

velocity is measured at two statute miles per hour. The temperature of the water when it leaves the

Gulf is registered at 65 degree Fahrenheit . Meteorologist have calculated the quantity of heat

sent into the North Atlantic by the stream is equal to one fourth of all the heat received from the sun

from the Tropic of Cancer to the Arctic circle.

But for the Gulf Stream London England would have a mean annual temperature 40 degree lower

than at at present.

Beginning in the Caribbean , it ends in the northern North Atlantic, and leaves the southern

coast about Cape Hatteras , North Carolina.
