A host of reports containing interesting information were published for the Terra Nova expedition. Those by the Publications Committee, thirteen volumes, focused on the physical and physiographical material and observations. Those by the Trustees of the British Museum focused on biological and geological results. A history of the expedition was to have been published as well but the interruption of the war caused this to be delayed by which time those by Scott, Taylor, Evans, Priestley, and Cherry-Garrard had already been published. Scarce.

Wright’s experiments to determine gravity with the use of pendulums continued the Antarctic work started by Drygalski (1901-03) and Bernacchi (1901-04).
