Location of Antarctic Base Stations in DMS

Winter 2001


Below are listed those Antarctic base stations that were in operation over the winter of 2001. Click on the link to have the same information in decimal degrees.

If you would like to know about summer bases in Antarctica the Council of Managers of National Antarctic Programs (COMNAP) has a comprehensive listing of these.

Stations in the first table are numbered clockwise from the Greenwich Meridian. Or if you would like a list of base stations by country jump to this table. If you would like to see the location of these base stations please look at the map.

Where supplied station coordinates are to the nearest 100 metres (or better), otherwise they are to the nearest minute.

100 metres is approx. equal to 10" of longitude and 5" of latitude

*Stations north of 60°S
