Here are some fun links about people that do follow the various buoys. There is a forum for Arctic Sea Ice that has some fun discussions.

https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php

One particular thread is “What the buoys are telling” and they watch our project, the IMBs and ITPs carefully. Sometimes they notice they are deployed before we do!

https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,327.800.html

Some of the camera images get posted to the “Arctic Image of Day”. Here’s one from OB9:

https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,416.msg59039.html#msg59039

We like the comment: “Another beauty shot from Obuoy9 yesterday. Not even nat geo can do very much better than this.”
