Figure 36. Nansen thermometer for use with a water sampling bottle. This thermometer was conceived by Fridtjof Nansen in collaboration with Vagn W. Ekman . This was not a reversing thermometer but was used in an insulated bottle and then brought back to the surface for reading. It was tested on the FRITHJOF in 1910 at many hundreds of meters.
