The Antarctic Peninsula, known as O'Higgins Land in Chile, Tierra de San Martin in Argentina, and originally known as the Palmer Peninsula in the US and as Graham Land in the United Kingdom, is the northernmost part of the mainland of Antarctica, located at the base of the Southern Hemisphere.

The Antarctic Peninsula is part of the larger peninsula of West. Antarctic Wildlife is the definitive identification guide to the birds and marine mammals of the Antarctic Peninsula, Drake Passage, and Beagle Channel.

This easy-to-use photographic field guide enables visitors to this unique region of the world–newcomer and seasoned traveler alike–to identify with confidence the penguins, whales, seals. Antarctic Peninsula, also called Palmer Peninsula, Graham Land, or Tierra de O’Higgins, peninsula claimed by the United Kingdom, Chile, and forms an mile (1,km) northward extension of Antarctica toward the southern tip of South peninsula is ice-covered and mountainous, the highest point being Mount Jackson at 10, feet (3, metres).

The book was great as it dealt with a lot of the different research topics connected to Antarctica and also because the author visits several bases in Antarctica. it was fascinating, as you can find out why there are telescopes in Antarctica, why it's a great place for seismology, how snow petrels are wonderful and awful to be face-to-face with /5.

Results are reported from palaeomagnetic samples collected in two traverses across the coast-parallel dyke swarm of southern Greenland.

This swarm probably resulted as the consequence of initial rifting between Greenland and Labrador, and a reversal of magnetisation has been found which is correlated on the basis of K Ar age determinations (∼ m.y.) with the Mateke event Cited by: 4.
