British Antarctic Survey Scientific Reports, 54, 62 Cited by: James Ross Island is located on the northern Antarctic Peninsula. It lies east of the Trinity Peninsula mountains on the Antarctic Peninsula, and these mountains shield the island from precipitation. This is one of the reasons why the island has large ice-free areas. James Ross Island is a large island off the southeast side and near the northeastern extremity of the Antarctic Peninsula, from which it is separated by Prince Gustav to 1, metres (5, ft), it is irregularly shaped and extends 64 km (40 miles) in a north–south direction. It was charted in October by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition under Otto Nordenskiöld, who named Highest point: Mount Haddington.

The James Ross Island Volcanic Group (JRIVG) is a large (c. km 2), long-lived (> 6 myr) basaltic volcanic field situated in northern Antarctic Peninsula and dominated by the Mount Haddington stratovolcano (Fig. 1, Fig. 2). It is in a pivotal position (northerly latitude, low elevation) to record the dynamics of the adjacent Antarctic Cited by: A revised stratigraphy of Cenozoic volcanic outcrops in the Brandy Bay area on James Ross Island is obtained by combining palaeomagnetic and stratigraphical anlysis with 40Ar/39Ar dating.
