The Argos satellite system continues to relay data from the tag that Katia was towing. This tag is programmed to send as much data as it can before the small lithium battery is exhausted. As you can see from the image below, we have almost received a complete history from this tag. We are still missing a good bit of data from the month of September and we hope that these data will be relayed to us. Hopefully once we receive and process the data, her track back towards Virgina and North Carolina will be revealed.
In the image below, you can see the gaps in data which are slowly being filled in.
