Antarctic oceanography research. British biologist Edward W. Nelson (1883-1923) sampling sea water through an ice hole on 24 December 1911 during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). He is using a Nansen-Petersson insulating water bottle, used to obtain sea water samples from different depths at their original temperatures. Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 (including Nelson) spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole.
