Location of Antarctic Base Stations in Decimal Degrees

Winter 2002


Below are listed those Antarctic base stations that were in operation over the winter of 2002. The coordinates have been given in decimal degrees for those users who wish to plot the stations in a GIS or similar system. Click on the link if you wish to view the coordinates in Degrees, Minutes, Seconds

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 from smallest longitude to largest longitude. 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
