About This Series
Born originally out of the activities of the Measuring the Earth digitalization project within the Art of Judgement research cluster, the discussion group expands the former's focus on the history of geodesy to explore the broader historiographical debate on instances of measurement and surveying in the geosciences. Ideas for readings for our future meetings are always welcome.

In this session we will discuss a combination of readings that focus, through different time scales, on apprehensions and measurements of both deep oceans and shallow waters:
Chapter 4 and the epilogue of Helen Rozwadowski, Vast Expanses: A History of the Oceans (Reaktion Books, Limited, 2019);
Marina Tolmacheva, “Reflections on the Knowledge of Shallow Waters,” Isis 112, no. 1 (March 1, 2021): 150–53.
