Caption: Antarctic oceanography research. British biologists Edward W. Nelson (left, 1883-1923) and Dennis Gascoigne Lillie (right, 1884-1963) on the Terra Nova on 1 January 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). They are using a Nansen-Petersson insulating water bottle to obtain sea water samples from different depths at their original temperatures. Nelson would later form part of the shore party, while Lillie would stay with the ship and continue his research there. Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition and led by Robert Falcon Scott, the primary objectives were scientific. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole.
