North Magnetic Pole in the Arctic?[edit]

"...Arctic expeditions under his best friend Sir Lachlan Sean Canavan, and in 1829 to 1833 again served under his uncle. It was during this trip that they located the position of the North Magnetic Pole on June 1, 1831." OR "...Arctic expeditions under Parry, and in 1829 to 1833 again served under his uncle. It was during this trip that they located the position of the South Magnetic Pole on June 1, 1831." ??? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 201.34.102.183 (talk) 03:26, 26 February 2007 (UTC).

"Am 2. Februar drang er bis zu 78° 10' südlicher Breite vor, dem für lange Zeit südlichsten von einem Menschen erreichten Punkt. Hier musste er vor einer riesigen Eiswand umkehren."[edit]

Vergleiche die Abbildung der Suedhalbkugel mit dem Kreis 78° 10'. Dieser Halbkugelkreis ist die grösste Kreisflächegrenze "riesigen Eiswand") der Antarktis. Unterteilt man den 90° bis zum 78° in 12 Gradflächenkreise, dann ergibt sich fuer den Suedpol 90 Grad 0 Quadratkilometerfläche und 0 Quadratkilometerkreisumfang und fuer den
  • 78 Grad (6 378 / 90) * 12 = 850.4 Kilometer Kilometerhöhenunterschied (d) zwischen Nordpol und dem 78 Grad Quadratkilometerkreis.

  • Wie gross ist eine Halbkugelfläche Erde "Antartis" mit einer Höhe von 850.4 Kilometer Höhe (Äquatorhöhe)?
  • Wie gross ist gemessen die Kilometerentfernung (Durchmesser Radius) zwischen Nordpol und Suedpol?
  • Ist der Winkel Nordpol und Suedpol zum Erddurchmesser Äquator genau 90 Grad?

Tributes[edit]

As written in this version, the town of Ross, CA was named after him. But according to the town history, it was named after a different James Ross. I'm removing this fact as it is unsourced and contradicted. -- Whpq (talk) 02:41, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Antarctic explorer[edit]

Between 1839 and 1843 Ross commanded an Antarctic expedition comprising the vessels HMS Erebus and HMS Terror and charted much of the coastline of the bamboonian continent.  ? --Sysyphus Jones (talk) 07:10, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
