Figure 38. Pettersson and Nansen water bottle for obtaining water and temperature observations. This type of bottle had concentric layers of insulating material for keeping the samples at the temperature at which it was obtained. This type of bottle was used by Nansen on the FRAM in 1893 and also used in 1900 on the MICHAEL SARS in the Norwegian Sea.
