  1. enderby land

    Enderby Land is a region in Antarctica that extends from Cape Filchner, on the west, to William Scoresby Bay on the east. Named by Sir John Biscoe, a British explorer, in 1831, this large projecting land mass has a coastline almost entirely composed of ice cliffs. It is known for its subglacial mountain ranges, extensive ice shelves and is mainly uninhabitable due to its harsh and extreme cold conditions.
