Euler arrived in 1727, and Daniel stayed in St. Petersburg until 1733. During that time, he worked on vibrating systems. In this study, he analyzed the nodes and frequencies of vibrating strings, which is what create different sounds when a violin is played. This was the beginning of wave theory, an important component in the study of such other fields as the propagation of both sound and light. His most important work on hydrodynamics was also begun at this time. Bernoulli coined the term for the field in his title Hydrodynamica.

Nordenskjköld was found by a group of Argentineans. The second French Antarctic voyage was carried out in the Pourquoi Pas? and lasted from 1908 to 1910.
