Smoky Wall[edit]

'''Smoky Wall''' ({{coor dm|54|35|S|36|11|W|}}) is a prominent [[mountain]] block, 1,840 m, in the northwest part of the [[Salvesen Range]] of [[South Georgia]]. The name "Wetterwand" (weather wall) was given to this mountain by the German group of the [[International Polar Year Investigations]], 1882-83, but the name did not become established. The feature was surveyed by the SGS, 1951-52, who reported that when viewed from the northeast, its summit is level and regular and has the appearance of a wall. The descriptive name Smoky Wall was recommended by the [[United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee]] (UK-APC) in 1954.

Smyley Island[edit]

'''Smyley Island''' ({{coor dm|72|55|S|78|0|W|}}) is an ice-covered [[island]], 38 nautical miles (70 km) long and from 8 to 21 nautical miles (39 km) wide, lying at the south side of [[Ronne Entrance]] and just northeast of [[Rydberg Peninsula]], [[Ellsworth Land]]. The feature is almost wholly surrounded by an [[ice shelf]], which gives an erroneous impression that the island is joined to Ellsworth Land. This larger composite feature was observed from aircraft by members of the [[United States Antarctic Service]] (USAS), 1939-41, who gave the name "[[Cape Smyley]]" to the projecting ice shelf at the northwest extremity. The [[Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names]] (US-ACAN) has withdrawn that name on the basis of the 1968 [[United States Geological Survey]] (USGS) map of the area and has approved the name Smyley Island for the island described. Named after Captain [[William H. Smyley]], American master of the sealing vessel Ohio during 1841-42. Captain Smyley, in February 1842, recovered the self-recording thermometer left at [[Pendulum Cove]], [[Deception Island]], by Captain [[Henry Foster]] of the be 0.5F.

Cape Smyth[edit]

'''Cape Smyth''' ({{coor dm|67|37|S|164|40|E|}}) is the southern extremity of [[Sturge Island]] in the [[Balleny Islands]]. In 1841, Captain [[James C.

He named the southernmost "[[Smyth Island]]" for his friend Captain [[William Henry Smyth]], [[Royal Navy]], President of the [[Royal Astronomical Society]]. Ross' error was discovered in 1904 by Captain [[Robert F. Scott]], who applied the name to the southernmost point on Sturge Island.

South Orkney Islands[edit]

'''South Orkney Islands''' ({{coor dm|60|35|S|45|30|W|}}) is a group of two larger and several smaller mountainous, barren islands covered with ice and snow and surrounded by many rocks, lying northeast of the [[Antarctic Peninsula]] between 6020S and 6050S, and 4420W and 46457W. Discovered on the occasion of the joint cruise by Captain [[George Powell]], a British sealer in the sloop Dove, and Captain [[Nathaniel Palmer]], an American sealer in the sloop [[James Monroe]], in December 1821. The islands were named Powell's Group on Powell's chart, published in England, [[November 1]], [[1822]]. They were explored and roughly recharted by Captain [[James Weddell]], British sealer, in 1823. Weddell's chart carried the name South Orkney Islands, which became accepted internationally. Subsequent charts of the group were published by the French expedition under Captain [[Jules Dumont]] d'Urville, 1837-40, and by the Norwegian whaling captain [[Petter Sorlle]], 1912-13. A running survey of the islands was completed in 1933 by DI personnel on the [[Discovery II]]. Further surveys were made by the [[Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey]] (FIDS) in the period 1947-50.

'''South Sandwich Islands''' ({{coor dm|57|45|S|26|30|W|}}) is a chain of north-south trending volcanic islands lying northward of [[Weddell Sea]] and extending 190 nautical miles (350 km) from [[Zavodovski Island]] on the north to [[Southern Thule]] on the south. Discovered and roughly charted in 1775 by Captain [[James Cook]] who gave the name "[[Sandwich Land]]" for the fourth Earl of Sandwich, then [[First Lord]] of the Admiralty. Cook concluded he had charted a group of islands or a point of a continent. The islands were more accurately charted by [[Admiral Thaddeus Bellingshausen]] in 1819.

South Stream (Antarctica)[edit]

'''South Stream''' ({{coor dm|77|27|S|163|44|E|}}) is a meltwater stream 2 nautical miles (3.7 km) southwest of [[Marble Point]] on the coast of [[Victoria Land]]. It issues from the front of [[Wilson Piedmont Glacier]] and flows southeastward to [[Bernacchi Bay]]. The stream was studied by [[Robert L. Nichols]], geologist for Metcalf and Eddy, Engineers, Boston, MA, which made engineering studies here under contract to the [[U.S. Navy]] in the 1957-58 season. So named by Nichols because the stream was located south of the U.S. Navy installations in the Marble Point area.

South West Bay[edit]

'''South West Bay''' ({{coor dm|53|3|S|73|22|E|}}) is an open [[bay]] indenting the west side of [[Heard Island]] immediately north of [[Cape Gazert]].

Chambers]] aboard the USS Marion at Heard Island in January 1882. The bay name appears to have developed from an American sealer name, "[[Southwest Beach]]," in use about 1860 for the pebble beach at the north end of this bay.

Specimen Nunatak[edit]

'''Specimen Nunatak''' ({{coor dm|67|59|S|66|46|W|}}) is a small but distinctive rock pinnacle that rises above the ice of [[Swithinbank Glacier]] about 4 nautical miles (7 km) south of the [[glacier]] terminus, in [[Graham Land]]. The feature was visited on [[February 9]], [[1941]] by [[Herbert G. Dorsey]] and [[Joseph D. Healy]] of the [[United States Antarctic Service]] (USAS), 1939-41, who gave the name because the pinnacle was a good example of a [[nunatak]] projecting above a broad ice field.
