Narrative

This lake is located on The Flatiron, at Granite Harbour (Botany Bay), and is a site of active research being undertaken at the University of Waikato. It has been named in honour of Dr M. Ann Chapman, one of the first women scientists to visit the Ross Sea Region, and the first woman to lead a scientific expedition in the Antarctic. Dr. Chapman led a team of scientists from the University of Waikato working on Antarctic limnology from Nov 24th 1970 to Feb 19th 1971. Dr Chapman was a founding member of the University of Waikato Antarctic Research Programme and of the New Zealand Limnological Society. She has been an inspiration to many Antarctic and limnological researchers.
