In this paper we extend the work of Thouvenot and others on Bernoulli splitting of ergodic transformations to ergodic flows of finite entropy. We prove that ifA is a factor of a flowS, whereS1 is ergodic andA has a Bernoulli complement inS1, thenA has a Bernoulli complement inS. Consequently, Bernoulli splitting for flows is stable under taking intermediate factors and certain\(\bar d\) limits. In addition it follows that the property of isomorphism with a Bernoulli × zero entropy flow is similarly stable.
