Abstract

Norwegian Antarctic Expeditions, 1927-1935. Privately financed by Norwegian businessman and whaling merchant Lars Christensen, this series of expeditions took place in the Southern Hemisphere summer season starting in 1927. One of the main aims of the expeditions was to find new whaling grounds, but specimens were also collected and geographical research was undertaken. During the voyages two islands were annexed for Norway.
