Ohmart and Boget are removing snow and leveling the area to be used during recovery of the 2001 mooring.

 



Boget, Johnson and Aagaard preparing the melt hole through which the mooring will be lifted. Boget holds poles that are attached to a melting cuthead and copper ring. Hot water is pumped to nozzles on the bottom of the ring. As the ice melts, the men rotate the ring to keep the ice melting evenly.

Dogs belong to the Russian support team at Camp Borneo. A musher uses them to drag equipment to plow the runway used by Twin Otter supply planes.

 



A chopper is used by the team to search for the location of the 2001 mooring. Later some team members use the chopper to reach locations where they can take conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) measurements.
