15-Sep-2011 -- This confluence was visited while I was on board the expedition ship "Origo" on a photographic expedition to Svalbard and the waters around the archipelago.
The ship followed meridian 20E, which is depth sounded to make a safe route to the ice edge, which at the moment was at 82 degrees north.
The confluence was passed just before 8 o'clock in the evening at a speed of 8 knots. My GPS passed 0.002 arcminutes from the CP, which is 0.002 x 1852 x sin(9 degrees) = 0.6 m. The waypoint direction reading when I was 22.1 m before the closest point says 352 degrees, which will mean a crossing 22.1 x sin(8) = 3.1 m beside the confluence. So I use the GPS accuracy of 5 meters to show how close I was.
The visibility towards south was pretty good, so both the Nordaustlandet coast and the Parry Islands could be seen.
Several fulmars were following the ship, so they are confluence visitors too.
Since "Origo" followed the same meridian on the return south, the confluence was visited a second time 53 hours later.
