Abstract: Bernoullicity is the strongest mixing property that a measure-theoretic dynamical system can have. This is known to be intimately connected to the so-called $\bar d$ metric on processes, introduced by Ornstein. In this paper, we consider families of measures arising in a number of contexts and give conditions under which the measures depend $\bar d$-continuously on the parameters. At points where there is $\bar d$-continuity, it is often straightforward to establish that the measures have the Bernoulli property.
