Cove Rock (61°54′S 57°48′W / 61.900°S 57.800°W / -61.900; -57.800Coordinates: 61°54′S 57°48′W / 61.900°S 57.800°W / -61.900; -57.800) is a low offshore rock 3 nautical miles (6 km) west of North Foreland, King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. It was charted by Discovery Investigations in 1937 and called descriptively Cone Rock; the spelling Cove Rock, likely through error in transcription, appeared in a Hydrographic Office publication in 1942, and became established.[1]
