Princess Elisabeth Station

obtained from Belgian Science Policy Office

Description

The station was erected on the Utsteinen Ridge (71°57’S; 023°21’E), situated at the foot of the Sør Rondane Mountains, Dronning Maud Land, 173 km inland from the former Roi Baudouin base (1958-1967) and 55 km from the former Japanese Asuka station (1986-1992). Positioned halfway between the Japanese Syowa station (684 km) and the Russian Novolazarevskaya station (431 km) it fills in a 1072 km unoccupied stretch between these two stations in one of the least occupied sectors of Antarctica that has only been intermittently investigated since the International Geophysical Year (IGY).
