The Arctic Archipelago, also known as the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, groups together all islands lying to the north of the Canadian continental mainland excluding Greenland.
Palmer Land is the portion of the Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica that lies south of a line joining Cape Jeremy and Cape Agassiz. This application of Palmer Land is consistent with the 1964 agreement between US-ACAN and UK-APC, in which the name Antarctic Peninsula was approved for the major peninsula of Antarctica, and the names Graham Land and Palmer Land for the northern and southern portions, respectively. The line dividing them is roughly 69 degrees south.
The Trojan Range is a mountain range rising to 2,760 metres (9,055 ft), extending northward from Mount Francais along the east side of Iliad Glacier, Anvers Island, in the Palmer Archipelago of the British Antarctic Territory. It was surveyed by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1955 and named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) for the Trojans, one of the opposing sides in the Trojan War in Homer's Iliad.
Batura Glacier(Urdu: بتورا گلیشیر), 57 kilometres (35 mi) long, is one of the largest and longest glaciers outside of the polar regions. It lies in the Gojal region of Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan. It is just north of the massifs of Batura, at 7,795 metres (25,574 ft), and Passu, at 7,500 metres (24,600 ft). The glacier flows west to east. The lower portions can be described as a grey sea of rocks and gravelly moraine, bordered by a few summer villages and pastures with herds of sheep, goats, cows and yaks and where roses and juniper trees are common.
German submarine U-533 was a Type IXC/40 U-boat of Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine during World War II. The submarine was laid down on 17 February 1942 at the Deutsche Werft yard at Hamburg as yard number 351, launched on 11 September 1942 and commissioned on 25 November 1942 under the command of Kapitänleutnant Helmut Hennig. After training with the 4th U-boat Flotilla in the Baltic Sea, U-533 was transferred to the 10th flotilla for front-line service on 1 May 1943.
Chiscas is a town and municipality in the Colombian Department of Boyacá, part of the subregion of the Gutiérrez Province.
The Simpson Strait is a natural, shallow waterway separating King William Island to the north from Adelaide Peninsula on Nunavut's mainland to the south. The strait, an arm of the Arctic Ocean, connects the Queen Maud Gulf with Rasmussen Basin's Rae Strait.
Tabarin Peninsula is a peninsula 15 nautical miles (28 km) long and 5 to 12 nautical miles (22 km) wide, lying south of the trough between Hope Bay and Duse Bay and forming the east extremity of Trinity Peninsula in the Antarctic Peninsula. It was discovered and charted by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition, 1901–1904, led by Otto Nordenskjöld and Carl Anton Larsen. It was mapped in 1946 by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) and named after Operation Tabarin, the naval code name for the FIDS from 1943 to 1945.
The Avro 533 Manchester was a First World War-era twin-engine biplane photo-reconnaissance and bomber aircraft designed and manufactured by Avro.
Secondary Highway 533, commonly referred to as Highway 533, is a provincially maintained secondary highway in the Canadian province of Ontario. The route begins in the town of Mattawa, at Highway 17, and travels north to Highway 63. Between these two junctions is a large barren expanse of wilderness with almost no habitation. Mattawa is the only community along the route. Highway 533 was assumed in 1956, along with many of the secondary highways in the province. It was later extended to Highway 63 in 1958, establishing the route as it remains today. A roundabout with Highway 17 was opened in late 2011, the first on a provincial highway in Ontario.
Möller Ice Stream is an Antarctic ice stream that drains an area of 66,000 square kilometres (25,000 sq mi) of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet as it flows north-northeast into the Ronne Ice S to the west of Foundation Ice Stream. The drainage basin of this ice stream is separated by the Rambo Nunataks from the drainage basin of Foundation Ice Stream.
Cariús is a municipality in the state of Ceará in the Northeast region of Brazil.
Wilkins Mountains is a group of low mountains of about 20 nautical miles (37 km) extent, located 25 nautical miles (46 km) southeast of the Sweeney Mountains in southern Palmer Land. Discovered by the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE), 1947–48, under Ronne, who named these mountains for Sir Hubert Wilkins.
Barnes Glacier is a glacier on the west side of Hemimont Plateau flowing west into Blind Bay on the west coast of Graham Land. It was named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee in 1958 for Howard T. Barnes, Canadian physicist and pioneer of ice engineering.
Cardell Glacier is a glacier draining the north slopes of Roygos Ridge and flowing northwestwards into Darbel Bay between Shanty Point and Panther Cliff, on the west coast of Graham Land, Antarctica.
Whitecloud Glacier is a glacier which flows northward between Klokotnitsa Ridge on the east and Tsarevets Buttress on the west to discharge into Charcot Bay just west of Almond Point, Trinity Peninsula. Named by United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) in 1960. The name is descriptive of cloud conditions that prevailed at the time of Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) survey of the area in 1948.
Duse Bay is a bay indenting the south side of Trinity Peninsula between View Point and the western side of Tabarin Peninsula. It was discovered by a party under J. Gunnar Andersson, of the Swedish Antarctic Expedition, 1901–04, and was named by Otto Nordenskiöld, the leader of that expedition, for Lieutenant S.A. Duse.
Marescot Ridge is a ridge in Antarctica consisting of numerous ice-covered hills, the highest being Crown Peak at 1,185 metres (3,890 ft) at the south end of the ridge. The ridge is located 2 nautical miles (4 km) inland from Marescot Point along the northwest coast of Trinity Peninsula. It was probably observed by Captain Jules Dumont d'Urville on February 27, 1838, when he named nearby "Cap Marescot". Following its 1946 survey, the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey gave the name Marescot Ridge to this ridge, thinking it to be the coastal feature named by d'Urville. The name Marescot has been retained for both the ridge and the nearby point.
