This symposium, held in Argentina in March 2003, commemorates Otto Nordenskjöld’s 1901 day trip, and can pay tribute to the Swedish and Argentinian explorers who took at the problem of early fieldwork in Patagonia and Antarctica. This subject is prolonged to incorporate contemporary fieldwork within the average sciences within the Archipelago of Tierra del Fuego, the Antarctic Peninsula and the sub-Antarctic seas, and celebrates the fruitfulness of continuous Swedish-Argentinian medical cooperation.

The symposium and linked actions happened within the towns of Buenos Aires, l. a. Plata and Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego), and this ebook contains a choice of the main major contributions provided on the assembly.

Sample text

Together with Caldenius three other Swedish geologists had become employed by the Argentinean Geological Survey: stratigrapher Seth Rosén, mining geologist Nils Albert Lannefors and the metallurgist Sven Axel Wässman. Sobral was more than satisfied and sent a telegram to Gerard De Geer asking for more Swedes. In 1927 therefore the geographer Erik Ljungner25 and the geotechnician Tor Hagerman were employed. Erik Ljungner, born 1892, had studied glacial morphology on the small scale in Sweden. His dissertation dealing with “fracture tectonics and morphology on the Swedish Skagerrak coast”26 is a basic work, the results of which are applied in detailed interpretations of glacially sculptured rocks.

15 Like in Tierra del Fuego he collected also peat for pollen analysis in New Zealand. Six bog areas were sampled, all situated in the southern part of the South Island. Lennart von Post together with Lucy M. 16 Back in Sweden Caldenius worked as a consultant, a geotechnician in geology to use his own words. He participated in several large constructions such as bridges and the reconstruction of the sluice system in Stockholm. In 1944 he was employed by the Geological Survey of Sweden where he stayed until his retirement in 1955.

He worked mainly on sedimentological problems in the provinces of Salta and Jujuy in northern Argentine. The results were published as his doctor’s thesis 30 and also in Argentina. 31 His conclusions have been applied widely also in his later work as a consultant in geotechnics in Sweden. For this purpose Hagerman founded a consulting firm, Hagconsult AB. The Argentine-Swedish cooperation has been resumed in more recent time, after some years’ deplorable break. It has taken place partly within the activity of INQUA (International Union for Quaternary Research), especially within its Commission on Genesis and Lithology of Quaternary Deposits (later: Commission on Glaciation).
