Ross Sea

Named in honor of the British explorer James Clark Ross who came in 1841 trying to reach the south magnetic pole commanding HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, the Ross Sea is a relatively ice-free part of the Southern Ocean. Since the Ross Sea allows an easier access to the South Pole than the Weddell Sea, most attempts to reach the pole were made via the Ross Sea and Ross Ice Shelf. A number of historical huts and modern scientific stations have been set up along the Ross Ice Shelf and the shore. At the entrance to the Ross Sea, Cape Adare has the first hut built in Antarctica.

Its original M?ori name, Te Punga O Te Waka a Maui, means "the anchor stone of Maui's canoe." M?ori mythology says the island's landmass held the god Maui's canoe secure while he and his crew raised the great fish—the North Island.
