 The Deep Western Boundary Current east of the Grand Banks has been observed during 1999–2005 by moored current-meter stations and shipboard current profiling sections. These recent observations can be compared with those of a WOCE moored array deployed during 1993–95 at the same location. Overall, the observations of Deep Water currents east of the Grand Banks reported here do not support suggestions of a basin-wide "slowdown" of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation.
