Antarctic Place Names - About Antarctica

The UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (APC) considers proposals and makes recommendations for place-names within the British Antarctic Territory (BAT), that part of the Antarctic that is south of 60° S and extending from 20°W to 80°W. The APC also considers and recommends names for South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.
