All picture locations and view directions are approximate.
See bas_publ for satellite views.
Note: please note that these pictures are of an event that occurred in the 94/95 season. As far as we know, nothing particularly significant has happened in the area subsequently.
In the far background the mountains of the Antarctic Peninsula can be seen.
The land to the Right is Cape Longing (I think).
The land in the "foreground" to the left is C. Longing; to the
Right in middle distance is James Ross Island; in
the distance the Peninsula.
In the center, the channel between James Ross Island
and the Mainland is free of shelf ice for the first time in
recorded history (which is about 100 years, around here).
In the Right foreground, James Ross Island.
In the distance, the Peninsula.
In the middle, the James Ross Channel.
