Geography of the Chilean AntarcticRegion de Magallanes
Chilean Antarctica, covering an area of 1,250,000 km ², is highly fragmented coastline including: To the east, the Larsen ice shelf, the Weddell Sea and the islands Vega, Seymour, Ross, Snow Hill and Robertson, and all the islands that extend south beyond the meridian 53° west. The great Tierra de O'Higgins peninsula, with its islands and neighboring islets, are in fact the continuation of the Andes, called "Antartandes" by some authors. To the north are the islands Piloto Pardo, Clarence, Dundee, Joinville and D'Urville. To the northwest are the South Shetland Islands, which consist of the islands King George, Nelson, Robert, Greenwich, Livingston, Deception and Snow. West, you'll find the Bellingshausen Sea and nearby lands stretching across up to meridian 90° West, including the islands Smith, Palmer, Low, Trinidad, Bravante, Anvers, Renaud, Serrano, Biscoe, Adelaida, Alejandro and Charcot.
