1M was terminated

1M was terminated this morning at 1030UT Jan 12 2013. It had been sinking steadily for about a day and we were trying to wait for it to make it out to sea before cutting it down.

I've made a map of both 1B and 1M of their final path. 1B was terminated from a higher altitude which may account for some difference.

The path of 1B. The big gap is where 1B has sending it's data to the ice. We will recover that data when the teams return.
