The Discovery Investigations were a series of British funded, scientific studies taking place in and around the Antarctic Southern Ocean. Undertaken between 1925 and 1951, the investigations were periodically conducted on board three research vessels: R.R.S. Discovery, R.R.S. William Scoresby and R.R.S. Discovery II. It was also conducted on land at the marine biological station Discovery House, at King Edward Point on the Island of South Georgia.
