Meteorology research in Antarctica. Scientific instruments, chemicals and books used by British meteorologist George Simpson (1878-1965) and others during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, a shore party of 33 (including Simnpson) spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Simpson's research included taking meteorological and magnetic readings. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their journey to the South Pole. Photographed on 31 March 1911 by Herbert George Ponting.
