  • Did you know that glaciers at the edges of the Antarctic ice cap flow like sluggish rivers towards the coast? | South Pole 1911-2011
    in red prevent them from continuing their journey out into the sea Illustration Norwegian Polar Institute The ice shelf holds the glacier back like a cork in a bottle and prevents more ice from flowing down to the sea In some places the sea is so shallow that the ice shelf runs aground on the seabed this can be seen as a huge bump on the surface and is called an ice rise These ice rises help impede the glacier and hold the cork in place ICE RISES is the title of a research project to examine ice rises on ice shelves along the coast of Dronning Maud Land in Antarctica In December this year a research team from the Norwegian Polar Institute will travel to the Fimbul Ice Shelf in Antarctica to try to figure out how ice rises influence what happens to the rest of the ice The team will study how the ice rises and the coastal areas have developed over the past millennia whether they have grown or shrunk The field work will be done over the next three Antarctic summer seasons The researchers will examine how the ice moves in a complex system of glaciers

  • Did you know that airplanes played a crucial role in Norwegian mapping of Antarctica? | South Pole 1911-2011
    Enderby Land and the Weddell Sea It is precisely this area that now goes by the name of Dronning Maud Land The shipping magnate Christensen financed an entire series of expeditions to Antarctica The last of these was onboard the tanker Torshavn in the 1936 37 season The commission for aerial surveying during the expedition had gone to Widerøe s Flyveselskap and Viggo Widerøe himself went along as pilot With him he brought his wife Solveig the photographer and radio technician Nils Romnæs and two mechanics Tom Fidjeland and Hans Strandrud In addition the photography expert Erik Simensen went along to develop and check the aerial photographs An aircraft was leased for the purpose a Stinson Reliant 1936 model with a 350 horsepower engine and an action radius of 1 200 km when fitted with an extra fuel tank The plane was constructed to be able to land and take off again on short runways and was outfitted with modern short and long wave radio that enabled two way communication They did photogrammetric surveying in which a camera mounted under the aircraft automatically takes oblique images of the terrain The camera took stereographic images two photographs were taken simultaneously with

    King Håkon VII s Vidda Thanks be to God The time was 3 p m when this happened The weather was of the best kind when we set off this morning but at 10 a m it clouded over and hid the sun Fresh breeze from the SE The skiing has been partly good partly bad The plain King H VII s Vidda has had the same appearance quite flat and without what one might call sastrugi The sun reappeared in the afternoon and now we must go out and take a midnight observation Naturally we are not exactly at the point called 90 but after all our excellent observations and dead reckoning we must be very close We arrived here with three sledges and 17 dogs HH put one down just after arrival Helge was worn out Tomorrow we will go out in three directions to circle the area round the Pole We have had our celebratory meal a little piece of seal meat each We leave here the day after tomorrow with two sledges The third sledge will be left here Likewise we will leave a little three man tent Rønne with the Norwegian flag and a pennant
