Balfour Currie and Frank Davies worked together at Chesterfield Inlet during the Second International Polar Year (1932-1933). Their records and data analysis were of primary importance in shaping future research in aurora borealis and upper atmospheric studies.
This digital project documents that year at Chesterfield Inlet, largely through Currie and Davies' own words, photographs, sample documents and research data.
