2015 E. SIBERIAN SEA DEPLOYMENT

Deployment locations: OB-8: 82° 44.5 N, 124° 30.0 E, 9/5/2016 and OB-15:  80° 41.9 N, 166° 28.0 E, 9/12/2016.

They were deployed in the East Siberian Sea (ESS) on the NABOS expedition on the RV Akademik Treshnikov, sailing from Kirkenes, Norway (for equipment and mooring crew boarding, including O-Buoy personnel) to Archangelsk, Russia (for research crew boarding), then ESS, and returning the same way, by Carlton Rauschenberg (Bigelow) who also actively assisted with all mooring deployments. These deployments only employ the ship’s crane to hoist and lower a fully assembled O-Buoy.
