NPEO: 11 April 2015

Artica (Barneo) —  April 11, 2015   N 89° 33′  W 018° 11′  — Clear, -29°C, north 2 m/s

Iridium call from Jamie Morison: The major effort today was preparing for the installation of Frederic Vivier’s Ice-T Buoy, which requires a large and overlapping hole through the ice.  Ice-T deployment should be complete tomorrow.  The Twin Otter took off from Alert headed north, but deteriorating weather at Barneo resulted in an Iridium call to Borek, and the Twin returned to Alert to try again tomorrow.
