Norway and past International Polar Years—a historical account

  • Stian Bones

Abstract

Surveying Norway’s role in past International Polar Years (IPYs), this essay by historian Stian Bones contributes to a broader understanding of Norway as a “polar nation”. He describes the strengths of Norway’s scientific traditions in the polar regions, and examines the varying motivations driving Norwegian involvement in the first three IPYs: 1882–83, 1932–33 and 1957–58 (also known as the International Geophysical Year).
