Double-sided map from the British Antarctic Survey presenting on one side a topographic map of the whole of the Antarctic Peninsula with the Weddell Sea at 1:3,000,000, plus on the reverse more detailed coverage at 1:1,000,000 of the peninsula’s northern half with the South Shetland Islands. The map is available as either a folded map, or a flat wall map that will be delivered in a poster roll.
On one side a map at 1:3,000,000 presents the whole of the Antarctic Peninsula with its offshore islands and the Weddell Sea. Coverage includes South Shetland Islands and South Orkney Island, and extends on the landmass of Antarctica to Pensacola Mountains. Satellite-based shading is overprinted with contours at 500 m intervals, with colouring and/or graphics indicating the ice shelf, ice rumples and rocky outcrops. The map also has spot heights and plenty of names of topographic features. Permanent scientific stations are marked, plus UK summer-only stations and depots. Weddell Sea has bathymetric colouring in bands of 500 m. Latitude lines are at 1º intervals, with longitude at 5º
On the reverse the northern half of the Antarctica Peninsula, including Adelaide Island where the BAS Rothera Station is based, is vividly presented in greater detail on a map at 1:1,000,000. Contour lines are at 250 m, and the overprint additionally shows summer-only scientific stations of all nations plus historic sites and monuments which are also listed in the legend with their HSM numbers. Latitude lines are at 30’ intervals with longitude at 2º.
