Stommel's hypothesis on the influence of the thermohaline circulation on the transport of the Brazil Current is illustrated using the product of Semtner and Chervin's model. The velocity distribution along specifically chosen zonal sections is analyzed. A procedure of singling out the thermohaline component of the circulation is suggested and the significance of the component is proved.
