Mike et al,

More data from "Bubba". He has not moved a great deal since yesterday,
however he has sent some higher quality locations. On some passes the
satellite has received six or seven signals from the tag. This may be
partly due to the better satellite coverage as "Bubba" moves north. Often
this many signals from one pass might mean that he has hauled out. Now,
however he is over one hundred miles from the nearest land. Although,
there can be ice in this region, it appears that there is no solid or
floating ice near this location, so it does not appear that he is hauling
out. If you want to see where the ice is around this location, check the
following web site for the latest maps of fast (solid) and floating
ice.....http://www.natice.noaa.gov/
