Notes Belgica information: Peninsula 13 km long which borders the west side of Charlotte Bay, on the west coast of Graham Land. First charted in 1898 by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition under Adrien de Gerlache, who named the north extremity “Cap Reclus” for Elisée Reclus (1830-1905), French geographer and author. The UK extended the name Reclus to the entire peninsula in 1960.
