Subject: location data, seal "Bubba"

Mike et al,

Well, as if you needed proof, here is proof that I should never pretend to
know what is going on. It would appear that I wrote off "Bubba" a bit too
soon. After three days with no signal we began to receive locations again.
 While the interruption might be due to low power in the tag, this might
have been due to weather or some other problem that blocked signals from
the tag. In any case, we have several more days of information to report.
When we left "Bubba" he was nearing the edge of a deep water channel at the
mouth of the Gulf of St.Lawrence (the Laurentian Channel). It appears that
once "Bubba" reached the deep water drop off, he turned to the north west
and began to follow the edge of the channel in the general direction of the
mouth of the Gulf. Keep your fingers crossed that the tag will hold out
for a bit longer, so we can see what he will be doing next.

The data:
