  • Did you know that the Norwegian vessel Norvegia sailed all around Antarctica in 1927 to 1931? | South Pole 1911-2011
    Institute The sealer Vesleper was purchased in 1927 and renamed Norvegia The first Norvegia expedition 1927 28 rediscovered Bouvetøya and led to that island officially becoming a Norwegian dependent territory in 1930 The expedition did extensive meteorological and oceanographic studies as well as research on krill The next expedition with Norvegia 1928 29 was the first to go ashore on Peter I Øy which had been discovered in 1821 The island was declared Norwegian territory and a hut was built there The operations extended from Bouvetøya to the sea west of the South Shetland Islands south to 71 11 S and west to 140 49 W The third Norvegia expedition 1929 30 was led by Hjalmar Riiser Larsen They went first to Bouvetøya where they built two depot huts one at Kapp Circoncision and another smaller one on Larsøya In addition large parts of the island were mapped and aerial photographs were taken After that Norvegia headed for Antarctica On 22 December 1929 Riiser Larsen and Lützow Holm landed their planes in Enderby Land and raised the Norwegian flag Riiser Larsen s and Lützow Holm s flights over Dronning Maud Land also led to the discovery and mapping of Kronprins Olav Kyst and Kronprinsesse Märtha Kyst the Crown Prince Olav and Crown Princess Märtha Coasts The expedition visited the area from south of South Georgia at 37 W to Dronning Maud Land and the ocean at 56 E The fourth and last expedition with Norvegia 1930 31 was initially under Gunnar Isachsen s command and then under Hjalmar Riiser Larsen The main tasks of the expedition during their circumnavigation of the Antarctic continent were to look for whales and carry out oceanographic meteorological and biological studies They did a series of soundings around the entire Southern Ocean many underwater banks

  • Did you know that an ice shelf is a glacier floating on the sea? | South Pole 1911-2011
    Maud Land is the ice shelf that contributes most fresh water to the sea This water plays an important role in determining the distribution and thickness of the ice cover in sea areas adjacent to the ice shelf and for the creation of deep sea water ICE Fimbul Ice Shelf top to bottom is a research project focused on climate in Antarctica The aim of the project is to find out whether the warm water in the sea outside Fimbulisen penetrates in under the ice speeding up ice melting or not The project examines mass balance melting and circulation in the seawater under the floating ice These processes are important puzzle pieces if we want to understand enough to predict changes in global climate and they have attracted much international attention A multi disciplinary team including oceanographers and glaciologists and supported by skilled technicians have paid several extended research visits to the ice shelf in recent years and have amassed vital information on the climate They have drilled through ice shelves as much as 1200 metres thick and deployed advanced measurement equipment The scientists are currently analysing the data collected during the field work on Fimbulisen The results so far

  • Did you know that many countries have research stations in Antarctica? | South Pole 1911-2011
