Numerical solutions are obtained to the path equation of the free jet which was derived in Part I of this study, for values of the parameters relevant to the Gulf Stream. Comparison is made with the observational data. It is shown that this steady state theory can describe the mean position of the stream as it falls off the continental shelf into deep water. The meandering of the stream about this mean position is discussed in some detail.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1967.tb01511.x
