Record #141772:

Ferder mot nord før 1880 / Reinhard Mook.

Title: Ferder mot nord før 1880 / Reinhard Mook.
Translated title: Voyages North before 1880.
Author(s): Mook, Reinhard.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Tromsø: Ravnetrykk
Language: Norwegian.
In: Ultima Thule. (1996.),
Abstract: Story starts with Pytheas, c. 330 BC, who reached Thule inside Arctic circle and with one month of darkness. Ptolemy corrected position to Shetlands. Irish monks and Viking discoverers are noted. Improvements in technique included charts in 13th Cent., compass in 14th, sun tables from 1482, and techniques for sailing nearer to wind. Discoveries in North America and in search for North-east Passage are noted. Dutch whalers produced two kinds of chart - detailed for themselves, outline for others. Cossacks explored Siberian coast seeking furs. Egede's missionary motivation was exceptional. Hadley's invention of sextant improved Arctic navigation considerably. Observations of weather, magnetism, aurora, ocean currents and ice began to be made seriously from 18th Cent. especially by Franklin and Crozier. Open Arctic was sought in vain by several expeditions. Weyprecht's Five Fundamental Principles of Arctic Research are explained. International Polar Year of 1882-83 followed. Final section describes social and professional demands on crew.
