“The groundhog is like most other prophets; it delivers its prediction and then disappears.” -Bill Vaughn

Although Drake may be no longer swimming, he is still calling in everyday around 21:00-22:00 GMT everyday.

Drake's current velocity is approximately 0.11m/s.  If this continues till January, which is when the next ship will able to pick Drake up, Drake will have travel 361,152m.  This gives Drake at least three projected paths for this time period:

We will continue to monitor the current systems around Drake to keep accurate predictions of where he will be.

Post analysis of Drake's data is our next step in working with Drake in order to determine heat transport along 26.5 degrees North.
