Mooring works (2/2)

Recovering the 2 years old mooring is of course just one part of servicing the mooring. After getting back all the instruments, we need to conduct a calibration with each instrument. Therefor they get attached to a CTD to check whether they are still measuring accurately or show some drift. This calibration cast are mostly done during the nights as there is not daylight needed. It just takes some time as we do a few stops when getting the CTD rosette back up.

Working during the day, most of us are happy to get as much sleep during the night as possible, but when there are calibrations cast there is no guarantee for that. For some works you just leave some notes for the night watch what to do. But for some works the night watch needs to wake you up. The sound of the ringing phone during the night is maybe the most disliked sound here in on board. For those being on watch during night it is quite nice to have some more company during the sometimes-lengthy calibrations cast.

When all instruments are working well, they can be deployed again. In the lab the instruments will be programmed and sorted to have the right kinds ready for each mooring. The deployment itself is a routine by now. Wire is given out from a winch and instrument after instrument is attached to it, with a couple of floating elements in between. Everything that is protocolled for the ones who going to recover it in about 2 years. Always starting with the top element of the mooring the ship, which is slowly moving towards the correct position, carries a up to 3-kilometre-long tail of floating elements. When reached the right position it’s time for the anchor drop. The anchor consisting of a couple of hundred kilograms of old train wheels is dropped in the water and the floating elements are diving down on after the other. Now our works is done, and we can only hope that all instruments will work well for the next to years.

As we had some bad luck with some fog for the first recovery, we were rewarded with a group of whales showing up right before we were done with our first deployment.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
    was curious what all is needed to get set up?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  2. GO!!!
    This phrase was said by the first cosmonaut on Earth – Yuri Gagarin. (Yuri Gagarin)
    He was the first astronaut on Earth. He was Russian! …
    Now Russia is becoming a strong country, gas pipelines, a vaccine against COVID-19, an army.
    Is this very reminiscent of the communist Soviet Union?
    How do you think?
    Now we have total control in our country. I am interested in the opinion of foreigners.
