British Polar Year Expedition, Fort Rae, N. W. Canada, 1932–33

Abstract

THE great scientific enterprise of the Second International Polar Year, 1932-33, is now bearing fruit in the publication, by the various co-operating nations, of the reports of their work. It will be remembered that the enterprise was a repetition and extension of the work of the First Polar Year, 1882-83, its main object being to obtain geophysical observations of various kinds at a number of high-latitude stations (mainly temporary) during a complete year ; an associated programme of intensified observations in middle and low latitudes was also carried out during the same period.
