Trapped in the Bodega Triangle: Day 9

College of the Redwoods’ drifter continues to wander in a relatively small area that we have dubbed “The Bodega Triangle”.  After charging southward nearly 90 nm in the first 5 days after deployment, the drifter has since been cycling around an area of only a few square miles.  The seasonally unusual southerly winds over the last couple of days have been driving the drifter northward, but the forecast calls for a return of our typically strong northwesterlies today. I’m tempted to suggest that those winds may push the drifter southward again, but I have been surprised so many times over the last 9 days that I think I’ll just say, “Stay tuned for more excitement!”
