Delineating a continent of ice and snow: cartographic claims of knowledge and territory in Antarctica in the 19th and early 20th century / Urban Wråkberg.

Title: Delineating a continent of ice and snow: cartographic claims of knowledge and territory in Antarctica in the 19th and early 20th century / Urban Wråkberg.
Author(s): Wråkberg, Urban.
Date: 2004.
Publisher: Göteborg, Sweden: Royal Society of Arts and Sciences
In: Antarctic challenges. Historical and current perspectives on Otto Nordenskjöld's Antarctic expedition, 1901-1903. (2004.),
Abstract: Examines technical, scientific and ideological problems of Antarctic cartography in 1900s, and discusses examples of their interplay. Assesses view of Antarctica as hostile ice fortress, and expression of this view in language of expedition accounts; problems with sightings and variations in visibility; inter- and intra-annual variations in extent of ice shelves; lack of fixed points for triangulation. Describes cartographic work of Samuel Duse during Nordenskjöld's 1901-03 Antarctica expedition, and comments on Nordenskjöld's renaming of many geographical features in Antarctic Peninsula region.
