If it's averaged across the whole flight, and it took off at about sea 
level, wouldn't it be zero?

Things don't look very good right now... must have splashed down 
already.  What's with the ballast drop count?  I'm guessing that once it 
ran out of ballast it just left the valve open.

3361 miles is still damned impressive.  Kudos to the SNOX team!
