ON 12 May 1876 Lieutenant Albert Markham planted the Union Flag farther north
than anyone had ever stood before. British interest in polar exploration had
diminished after the excesses of the search for Franklin, but, thanks in no small
measure to the efforts of Albert's cousin Clements, the Royal Navy had been
persuaded to send two ships to the Arctic in 1875, Alert and Discovery, under the
command of George Nares. Markham reached 83° 20' N when, blighted by
scurvy, his party ...

And the mainstream ice coring community remained very much in the grip of its
polar obsession. The core they had finally recovered five years earlier at Dye 3,
in Greenland, had provided tantalizing hints of multiple, dramatic, and abrupt
climate changes there during the late Wisconsinan, so scientists on both sides of
the Atlantic now lusted after Greenland's ultimate prize: a deep core at the
island's summit, where the ice is almost two miles thick. But the infighting among
the various ...

Following Hall's success, Britain sent forth one final polar expedition in 1875,
under the command of George Strong Nares (1831- 1915). Nares set a new
record for penetrating farthest north, though his record was not much further than
Hall's, and his famous declaration that there was “no thoroughfare” marked the
end of British Arctic exploration. It was left for an American, Robert Edwin Peary (
1856- 1920), to take up the polar obsession, which held him in its grip from the
early 1890s ...
