  • Edward VIII Plateau

    The Edward VIII Plateau is a dome-shaped, ice-covered peninsula between Magnet Bay and Edward VIII Bay. It was probably seen by personnel on the RSS William Scoresby in 1936, and mapped from aerial photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37, and named Gulfplataet (the gulf plateau). It was renamed "King Edward Plateau" by ANCA, but the form Edward VIII Plateau has been approved by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) to be consistent with the names of nearby Edward VIII Bay and Ice Shelf.

    Edward VIII Bay is a bay about 32 kilometres (20 mi) in extent, located between Edward VIII Plateau (a dome-shaped, ice-covered peninsula near Magnet Bay ) and the Øygarden Group of islands. The head of the bay is occupied by the Edward VIII Ice Shelf. The bay was discovered in 1936 by Discovery Investigations personnel on the RRS William Scoresby, and named for Edward VIII, then King of the United Kingdom.

  • Edward VIII Ice Shelf

    Edward VIII Ice Shelf is an ice shelf occupying the head of Edward VIII Bay in Antarctica. The northern part of this feature was called Innviksletta (the inner bay plain) by Norwegian cartographers, who mapped it from aerial photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition in 1936–37. The area was first visited in 1954 by an ANARE (Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions ) sledge party. The entire ice shelf was then mapped and named in association with Edward VIII Bay.
