The Location of MH370 - A Reverse Drift Study Based On Debris Found

The following is a reverse drift study performed on all debris pieces found thus far in Africa which either are confirmed or believed to be from MH370. The objective of this study is to try to define the most common general area with the highest probability of being the point of origin of where all these debris pieces may have originated from in the Indian Ocean. This study ignores all other data and only uses the drift data from the drift tool ( to determine all possible origin points of all the debris pieces based on their respective locations and estimated drift times at Sea.
