Two O-Buoy monitoring systems are scheduled to be deployed this summer. O-Buoy 9 will be deployed during the NABOS (Nansen and Amundsen Basin Observational
System) Expedition in the East Siberian Sea. O-Buoy 10 will be deployed during the JOIS Expedition in the Beaufort Sea.
The NABOS deployment (O-Buoy 9) will take place on the Russian research icebreaker Akademik Fyodorov for a 34 day cruise departing from and returning to Kirkenes Norway. O-Buoy 10 will be deployed, once again, from the Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker Louis S. St-Laurent on a 32 day cruise in the Beaufort Sea.
In addition to these two new systems that are being deployed this summer, O-Buoys 7 and 8 are still operating in the Beaufort Sea and providing real time summer data. Click here to see live movies and data of these systems.
