At Mys Olovyanniy, their first Stakhanovite operation involved collaboration with the station at Mys Chelyuskin [Cape Chelyuskin] to mount a 15-day hydrological station in Proliv Shokal'skogo in addition to the normal duties at each station (Kremer, 1975).
Once his replacement had arrived in the summer of 1945, Kremer flew home to Moscow, but almost immediately he was on his way to his new posting, as head of the research station at Mys Chelyuskin at the northern tip of Poluostrov Taymyr [Taymyr Peninsula] and thus also of Eurasia.
This was a major centre with an even larger population and a wider research programme than at Mys Chelyuskin. From here Kremer coordinated the weather-observing programme for all the stations throughout the eastern Soviet Arctic; this was particularly important in terms of the support of shipping traffic on the eastern sector of the Northern Sea Route (Kanevskiy, 1977:21).
In the 1970s, probably stimulated by Dmitriy Shparo's ski trip in 1970 from Ozero Taymyr [Lake Taymyr] to Mys Chelyuskin via the Ostrova Komsomol'skoy Pravdy [Komsomol'skaya Pravda Islands], Arctic trips, especially those promoted by the newspaper Komsomol'skaya Pravda, became very popular.
While, unlike his famous countrymen of the Great Northern Expedition from the Priokskiy kray, such as Chelyuskin or Chirikov, Boris Aleksandrovich Kremer made no new geographical discoveries, and as a result his name is largely unknown outside of Russian Arctic circles, his contribution was nonetheless impressive.
