Abstract:
The author makes a summary for a series of geomorphometric, geological, and biological field studies by a complex team of the 68th Russian Antarctic Expedition performed at two areas of the Larsemann Hills oasis (Ingrid Christensen Coast, Princess Elizabeth Land, East Antarctica) in February 2023. The areas (a rocky island and a cape) are located to the south of the Stornes Peninsula, at the western border of the oasis with the Polararboken Glacier, on the Wilcock Bay coast. At the time of filed studies, both the areas were white spots on large scale topographic and geological maps, unexplored, and without any names given before. Guided by traditions of land explorers as well as considering the mapping practice of new territories, the 68th Russian Antarctic Expedition complex team assigned seven toponyms to the areas and their particular elements.
The author is grateful to A.V. Klepikov, V.L. Martyanov (RAE AARI) for the opportunity to participate in the seasonal work of the 68th RAE; A.N. Nikolaev, D.V. Shepelev, D. A. Mamadaliev, I. A. Abdrakhmanov for their support
