a peninsula in the northwestern part of Alexander I Land (69°45’ S lat., 75°15’ W long.), in Western Antarctica. Washed by the Bellingshausen Sea, the Charcot Peninsula is connected to the continental land mass by the Wilkins Ice Shelf. The peninsula, which has an area of approximately 2,700 sq km, is almost completely covered by a glacier, whose surface lies 270 m above sea level. In the northwestern part of the peninsula the surface of the glacier is broken by mountain peaks rising to an elevation of 609 m at Mount Monique. The peninsula was discovered in 1910 by the French antarctic expedition of J.-B. Charcot and was named in honor of the explorer’s father.
