The discovery of the North Pole by Frederick Albert Cook has been confirmed and established by the verification of his account of the physical conditions, the physical geography, at the North Pole and in the North Polar region given the world, unknown before his first report, by later exploration and the sciences of oceanography, glaciology and geography / Sheldon S.R. Cook.

Abstract: Enumerates and discusses later recognition given to Cook's 1907-09 North Pole Expedition by authorities in fields of oceanography, glaciology, Arctic and Antarctic studies, and students of history of polar exploration.
