his whaler Norvegia into the waters
traversed in part by the Byrd ex-
pedition.
Valuable geographical informa-
tion was gathered, indicating that
the Antarctic shore facing South
Africa is considerably further south
than supposed and that Nimrod Isle
and the Dougherty Islands, charted
as lying far to the north of Marie
Byrd Land, are mythical.
The most striking result of the
expedition was a "census" of the
whales in South Polar waters. Us-
ing two planes, aviators were able
to count the great blue bulks from
the air, much as submarines were
spotted during the World War. No
estimate of their number was given.
