Excerpt from The Norwegian North Polar Expedition, 1893 1896, Vol. 5: Scientific Results Having been entrusted with the mechanical and mineralogical examination of the bottom-samples of the Fram Expedition, I now publish the results of this examination, in the hope that a tolerably clear idea will thereby be obtained of the lithology of the bottom of the North Polar Sea, a sea which, on account both of its geographical situation, and of most of the factors that have to do with sedimentation, occupies a most exceptional position as compared with all other seas. Among the innumerable important scientific results obtained by the Fram Expedition the proving of the existence of a large, deep, North Polar Basin is by no means the least. Formerly, we generally believed that the North Pole was surrounded by great tracts of land, and that the sea to the north of the Old World was of comparatively small extent, and particularly, of inconsiderable depth compared with the large oceans of the world. It was formerly, hardly possible to form a clear conception of the appearance of the bottom-deposit of this ocean bed, but it was scarcely expected that it would be of so consistently fine a character as these bottom samples would seem to indicate. As long as nothing very definite was known about the remarkable drift which nearly always prevails in the Polar Sea, it was conceivable that a portion of the region at least, might be covered with icebergs; and even though it be conceded that their power of transporting gravel and stone is of a very disputable character, yet it is certain that with the lapse of long periods the bottom would obtain some coarse material from this source.
