Scientific interest in the Falkland Islands Dependencies was revived after a lapse of some years when Operation “Tabarin” was formed in 1943, under the auspices of the Royal Navy. In spite of severe wartime limitations on equipment, a great deal of fundamental survey and geological work was accomplished during these early years. The Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (F.I.D.S.), which was established in 1946, continued the scientific work of Operation “Tabarin”, and since that date it has gradually expanded its scientific activities in the Dependencies. The Survey is now solely responsible for all official British geological investigations undertaken in the Dependencies.
