Abstract:South Georgia is an island in the South Atlantic, 900 miles E.S.E. of the Falklands, of which it is a Dependency. It is 110 miles long, seldom over 20 miles wide, has a deeply indented coast, and is very mountainous. Mount Paget rises to 9625 ft., and 23 peaks exceed 6000 ft. Although the island lies in the equivalent latitude to Carlisle, the snow line is around 1000 ft and many glaciers flow into the sea.
