East Antarctic Shield Archaean Terrains/ Domains with Limited or Negligible Later Overprints The Grunehogna Craton, Dronning Maud Land The Archaean Napier Complex, Enderby Land The Archaean Vestfold Block, Prydz Bay . Several Antarctic ice streams, which account for about 10% of the ice sheet, flow to one of the many Antarctic ice shelves: see ice-sheet dynamics. East Antarctica lies on the Indian Ocean side of the Transantarctic Mountains and comprises Coats Land, Queen Maud Land, Enderby Land, Mac. Robertson Land, Wilkes Land, and Victoria Land. Biogeographically, the Antarctic ecozone is one of eight ecozones of the Earth's land surface. A research station is a station that is built for the purpose of conducting scientific research. Iquique Cove is a small, m ( yd) wide cove indenting for m ( yd) the east coast of Discovery Bay, Greenwich Island in the South Shetland.

This paper presents a preliminary account of the glaciological observations made by the Antarctic Expedition of the U.S.S.R. Academy of Sciences in K aiser Wilhelm II L and, Queen Mary Land and Knox Coast in Summary Antarctic glaciological studies should focus principally upon features unique to the Kemp and upon basic relations of world‐wide significance.

Antarctic ice is the greatest mass of land‐l. Due to their unique geophysical and geodynamic environment, both the Arctic and Antarctic polar regions are often utilized for geodetic and geophysical observations. This book is a collection of papers on various aspects of the scientific investigation and observation techniques of the polar regions at both temporary and permanent observatories.

(He didn't name it, but the area is now called Kemp Land.) Pack ice prevented him from landing, so he set a course to Kergulen Island and there hunted elephant seals for their oil. The last of the great Enderby captains was John Balleny, who sailed from England in aboard the schooner Eliza Scott, accompanied by Thomas Freeman in the Sabrina.

The sensitivity of Antarctic sea-ice to increasing glacial freshwater release into the Southern Ocean is studied in a series of year ocean/sea-ice/iceberg model simulations. Glaciological estimates of ice-shelf melting and iceberg calving are used to better constrain the spatial distribution and magnitude of freshwater forcing around Antarctica.

Marking the north end of Borchgrevink Coast and the west end of Pennell Coast, the cape separates the Ross Sea to the east from the Southern Ocean to the west, and is backed by the high Admiralty Adare was an important landing site and base camp during early Antarctic the coast to the northeast are the Adare Seamounts and the Adare Trough.

East Antarctica is the part of Antarctica that falls in the Eastern Hemisphere, east of the arbitrary line of 0 o longitude on the South Africa-facing side down to the South Pole then o on the Australia-facing side. It's mostly a high, even plateau with an intensely cold dry climate and no wildlife, not even tundra.

As with the rest of the continent, this area is governed by the Antarctic. ANTARCTIC PENINSULA. Figure 2. Locations and names of three Antarctic Peninsula areas for which the U.S.

Heavy blizzards were encountered, but Mawson discovered new land east to Kemp Land which he named MacRobertson Land (after the benefactor of the expedition).

Enderby land was seen at last on 12 January In January, Captain James Cook crosses the Antarctic circle and circumnavigates Antarctica, though he doesn't sight land, deposits of rock seen in icebergs showed that a southern continent exists. His comment - "I make bold to declare that the world will derive no benefit from it".

- Captain Thaddeus Bellingshausen a Russian naval officer in the Vostok and Mirny circumnavigates. has never been crossed; and distant land on the antarctic circle has only been sighted; namely, Enderby Land and Kemp Land. This quadrant might receive the name of, provisionally, ENDERBY, or of llVlilia after the German ship which approached Enderby Land this year.

We thus have the unknown region divided into four quadrants. Austra lasin side. The continent contains the world's largest area of fresh water, which is contained within several rivers and sub glacial lakes. Antarctica’s longest river is the Onyx River, shown above, in West Antarctica at thirty two kilometers long and the continent's largest lake is Lake Vostock, situated in East Antarctica, which has a surface area of 26, square meters.

The Antarctic Ice Sheet, containing x km3 of glacial ice (Drewry et al., ; Vaughan ), is the largest glacial system on Earth. The western part of the present Antarctic ice sheet (West Antarctic Ice Sheet, WAIS), west of the Transantarctic Mountains (Fig. 1), is largely marine-based, currently very dynamic and.

Observations from the Totten calving front confirm that ( ± ) × m3 s−1 of warm water enters the cavity through a newly discovered deep channel. The ocean heat transport into the cavity is sufficient to support the large basal melt rates inferred from glaciological observations.

Antarctica (/ æ n ˈ t ɑːr t ɪ k ə / or / æ n t ˈ ɑːr k t ɪ k ə /) is Earth 's southernmost continent. It contains the geographic South Pole and is situated in the Antarctic region of the Southern Hemisphere, almost entirely south of the Antarctic Circle, and is surrounded by the Southern Ocean.

At 14, square kilometres (5, square miles), it is the fifth-largest. Brazilian Antarctica (Portuguese: Antártida Brasileira or Antártica Brasileira) is the name of the Antarctic territory south of 60°S, and from 28°W to 53°W, proposed as "Zone of Interest" by geopolitical scholar Therezinha de Castro.

While the substance of that designation has never been precisely defined, it does not formally contradict the Argentine and British claims geographically.
