This double-sided map provides an overview of the northern part of the Antarctic Peninsula (most commonly visited on Quark Expeditions voyages to the Antarctic). It covers the area between Joinville Island and Hughes Bay, including James Ross and Snow Hill islands and the northern limit of the Larsen Ice Shelf on the east coast. It connects to map BAS/UKAHT 2 to give full coverage of the northern Antarctic Peninsula as far south as the Argentine Islands.
The map shows topographic detail with a Landsat ETM+ satellite image mosaic backdrop. The map includes: Coastline; elevation information as contours and selected mountain summit heights; UK place-names; scientific research stations; Historic Sites and Monuments (HSMs) and Antarctic Specially Protected Areas (ASPAs).
