May 21: The big warm core ring near 69.5W continues to be shaved off by the Gulf Stream meander, further reducing its size to that of a normal ring. That small warm eddy at the shelf break near 72.W west persists.

A glider has been sent in. The map at the top shows its about half way there.

Nice tracking.
But that nice size eddy east of the little red spot seems like it has been there for a while.
The meandering Gulf seems to be acting lime a stop
and keeping it up there.
Do yoiu envision this moving downward west along the edge?
This seems to be typical seasonal eddy that we would expect, correct?
