Charleston Bump Expedition. Currents caused as result of Gulf Stream encountering the Charleston Bump and perturbing flow. The Charleston Bump complex causes the Gulf Stream to speed up and be deflected offshore. Even when the weather is beautiful, waters deflected off the Bump often result in standing waves and white water adjacent to glassy seas.
