Record #177162:

Discovery at sea: a heady mix of scientists, ships and sailors / Anthony L. Rice.

Title: Discovery at sea: a heady mix of scientists, ships and sailors / Anthony L. Rice.
Author(s): Rice, Anthony L.
Date: 2005.
Abstract: Evaluates factors affecting success or failure of science at sea, including suitability of vessel as research platform and support of scientist's shipmates, drawing on some classic examples of unsuitable ships, such as Wyville Thomson and Carpenter in Lightning in 1868, and relatively minor shortcomings of Scott's Discovery. Recounts major personality clashes on research or exploration voyages from Edmund Halley's experience in Paramore in 1698, to Nicolas Baudin's appalling relations with almost all his companions in Géographe and Naturaliste in 1800-1803. Includes incidents from lives of Joseph Banks, James Cook, Thomas Huxley, and François Péron.

Offprint: Archives of Natural History. Vol. 32(2) :177-191.
