The report which follows is based on data and sketches brought back on the termination of the Expedition, which remained in my charge and were not dealt with until the conclusion of the war.
In the normal course of events, they would have been sent to Dr. G. C. Simpson, for analysis, since the auroral observations were made under his direction. Only at the conclusion of the war were the data rediscovered, and they were then analysed by myself, owing to pressure on Dr. Simpson of work in connection with the meteorological report.
Though all members of the Expedition took their turn on the auroral watch the credit for the observations lies chiefly with Dr. Simpson and with Major R. E. Priestley, who organised and directed the scientific work of the Northern party. The labours of the latter small party must indeed have been greatly increased by the burden of auroral observations taken every two hours during the winter, and very great credit is due to Priestley and to other members of this party for their zeal and energy.
One point which has not received attention in the report, but which cannot be allowed to escape notice, is that on our Expedition, as on others, reports were made that aurora had been seen at low altitudes and that a crackling noise accompanied the display.
The first instance was the report that aurora was visible between winter quarters at Cape Evans and Mt. Erebus. The whole scientific staff at once left the but to investigate, but no such phenomenon was visible by that time. Major Priestley, however, informs me that a similar phenomenon was reported from Cape Royds during the Shackleton Expedition in 1908, this time by one of the scientific staff.
