The NABOS cruise reached their first observation site yesterday! They successfully recovered mooring M6-AK6 which was in water for three years (deployed in summer 2015). This is one of seven moorings forming a mooring cross-slope section off Severnaya Zemlya archipelago. This section consists mostly of German (AWI) equipment, but this specific mooring had a lot of IARC instrumentation. Thus, this is a part of our collaborative work with our German colleagues. Our international team will be recovering moorings from this cross-section for several more days.
Being so far north, NABOS internet connection is poor so posts may be intermittent.
