1  Name and location
                   Moe Island, South Orkney Islands.
2  Description
                   Moe Island, South Orkney Islands, is a small irregularly‑shaped island lying 300 m off the south‑western extremity of Signy Island, separated by Fyr Channel. It is approximately 1.3 km from the northeast to southwest and 1 km from the northwest to southeast. The position of Moe Island on Admiralty Chart No. 1775 (60°44′S, 45°45′W) does not align closely with the more accurate coordinates in the map (60°44′S, 45°41′W).
The boundary coordinates of the Area, starting with the most north‑westerly position and moving clockwise, are as follows:
                     (a)  60°43′40″S, 45°42′15″W;
                     (b)  60°43′40″S, 45°40′30″W;
                     (c)  60°43′55″S, 45°40′10″W;
                     (d)  60°44′40″S, 45°40′10″W;
                     (e)  60°44′40″S, 45°42′15″W.
The Area includes all of Moe Island and unnamed adjacent islands and islets. The Area comprises all of the ice‑free ground, permanent ice and semi‑permanent ice found within the boundaries, but excludes the part of the marine environment that is further than 10 m offshore from the low tide water line (as indicated in the map).
Boundary markers have not been installed because the coast itself is a clearly defined and visually obvious boundary.

Latitude 62°24′S, longitude 59°30′W.
2  Description
                   Coppermine Peninsula is located at the north‑western end of Robert Island. It covers an elongated strip (2 km long by 500 m wide), from the isthmus connecting Robert Island to Cape Fort Williams. It has an irregular relief, with average heights of 30 to 40 m above sea level, and many protrusions reaching over 80 m above sea level, such as the basaltic columns of Neptune’s Cathedral and the snout near the facilities at Luis Risopatrón Base (Chile).
The Coppermine Peninsula extends from Cape Morris to Triplet Hill, separating Carlota and Coppermine Coves. This peninsula is the most westerly area of Robert Island and ends in the western tip at Fort Williams, a cape with striking features, such as Morris Rock, located in the coastal area.
The peninsula is connected to Robert Island through a terrace‑shaped isthmus featuring marine gravel, approximately 10 m above sea level and 250 m wide. The isthmus is interrupted to the east by a small horseshoe‑shaped hill. At the south‑eastern end of Coppermine Cape, the Triplet Hill emerges, with a height of 140 m above sea level.
The Area is shown in grey on the map.

1  Name and location
                   Cape Royds, Ross Island.
Latitude 77°33′20″S, longitude 166°09′56″E.
2  Description
                   Cape Royds is located at the western extremity of Ross Island, McMurdo Sound, on a coastal strip of ice‑free land approximately 8 km wide, on the lower western slopes of Mount Erebus. The Area comprises both a terrestrial and a marine component.
The terrestrial component of the Area consists of ice‑free land within approximately 350 m of Flagstaff Point (77°33′21″S, 166°09′55″E) that is seasonally occupied by a breeding Adélie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) colony. The boundary captures all of the area occupied by breeding penguins and the main southern route used by the penguins to access the sea. The marine component comprises an area of sea within 500 m of the Cape Royds coastline, which includes the main penguin access route to the colony.
The boundary of the terrestrial component is as follows:
                     (a)  starting at a small embayment at the north‑western corner of the terrestrial component, it extends northeast for 53 m to a survey mark which is an iron tube embedded in the ground;
                     (b)  then east for 9 m to a signpost (77°33′11.2″S, 166°09′35.2″E);
                     (c)  then east‑northeast for 30 m to a signpost (77°33′10.9″S, 166°09′39.4″E) halfway down the slope of a small hill;
                     (d)  then southeast for 133 m to a signpost (77°33′11.8″S, 166°09′59.0″E) east of Pony Lake;
                     (e)  then south‑southeast for 42 m to a signpost (77°33′12.9″S, 166°10′01.9″E);
                      (f)  then 74 m to a signpost (77°33′15.2″S, 166°10′05.7″E) at the southern end of the penguin viewing area;
                     (g)  then 18 m to the coast at Arrival Bay (77°33′15.8″S, 166°10′06.6″E);
                     (h)  then along the coastline to Derrick Point.
The boundary from Pony Lake (signpost at 77°33′11.8″S, 166°09′59.0″E) to Derrick Point coincides with the southern boundary of ASPA No. 157 (Backdoor Bay).
The marine component of the Area comprises the area within 500 m of the mean high water coastline of Flagstaff Point. The boundary of the marine component is as follows:
                     (a)  starting at Derrick Point (77°33′14.1″S, 166°10′22″E), it extends southwest for 500 m;
                     (b)  then west, maintaining a distance of 500 m from the shore, to 77°33′11.8″S, 166°08′10″E;
                     (c)  then due east 500 m to the coast at the north‑western corner of the terrestrial component (77°33′11.8″S, 166°9′25″E).

Site F—Telefon Bay
The site incorporates several features created during the 1967 eruption in Telefon Bay, i.e. Pisagua Hill on the southern side of the site, the small shallow Ajmonecat Lake on the ash plain north of Stancomb Cove and the low flat ash plain extending from the shoreline of Telefon Bay to the steep slopes and lava outcrops approximately 0.5 km inland. Pisagua Hill was created as a new island in 1967, but is, as of 2014, joined to the main island by the aforementioned ash plain. At the northern end of the plain is Extremadura Cove, which was a lake until the narrow isthmus (approximately 2 m wide and 50 m long) separating it from Port Foster was breached in approximately 2006. Extremadura Cove is excluded from the site.
The northern shoreline of the lagoon (Stancomb Cove) at the southwest of Telefon Bay marks the southern boundary of the site, and the south‑western shore of the Extremadura Cove to the north of Telefon Bay marks the north‑eastern boundary of the site. The south‑eastern boundary extends along the shore south of Pisagua Hill, north to the shoreline of the Extremadura Cove at the northern end of Telefon Bay. The north‑western boundary is roughly delineated by the 10 m contour of Telefon Ridge that links Stancomb Cove to Extremadura Cove. Ajmonecat Lake (62°55′23″S, 60°40′45″W), including its shoreline, is included in the site. The shoreline of Telefon Bay is excluded from the site to allow access past the site.

1  Name and location
                   Stornes, Larsemann Hills, Princess Elizabeth Land.
Latitude 69°25′S, longitude 76°6′E.
2  Description
                   Stornes lies within the Larsemann Hills, a coastal ice‑free area in southern Prydz Bay, East Antarctica. Stornes is located between Thala Fjord and Wilcock Bay and is 21.13 km2 in area. The Area comprises the majority of Stornes, plus small unnamed promontories to the southwest. The Area does not have a marine component.
The Area boundary comprises the coastline (following the low tide mark) between a point on the western side of Thala Fjord at 69°25′29″S, 76°8′29″E (boundary point 1) to a point to the south of McCarthy Point at 69°28′40″S, 76°3′22″E (boundary point 25), then northeast following the coast line at the low tide mark back to boundary point 1. The remainder of the boundary largely follows the southern limit of rock outcrops between those boundary points. An indentation from the coast on the eastern side of the peninsula accommodates the potential need for vehicle landings and access to the inland and Broknes when ice conditions do not allow the use of preferred landings and routes elsewhere in the Larsemann Hills.
In the table, the item number is the same as the boundary coordinate number.

                   The Area comprises 3 high altitude geothermal sites, Tramway Ridge on the summit of Mount Erebus (77°31′S, 167°06′E), 3 locations of geothermal activity on the summit of Mount Melbourne (74°21′S, 164°42′E), and the summit of Mount Rittmann (73°28′S, 165°37′E).
Tramway Ridge, Mount Erebus
Tramway Ridge is a ridge that rises to approximately 3 450 m above sea level on the north‑western slope of the main crater of Mount Erebus. The site is located along this ridge approximately 1.5 km from the main crater.
The boundary of the site comprises a rectangle of 200 m by 200.8 m which encompasses most of the geothermally heated ground of lower Tramway Ridge. The boundary is as follows:
                     (a)  starting at the north‑western boundary corner at 77°31′01.853″S, 167°06′21.251″E (Point A), it extends south to the south‑western boundary corner at 77°31′08.327″S, 167°06′20.686″E (Point E);
                     (b)  then east to the south‑eastern boundary corner at 77°31′08.448″S, 167°06′50.521″E (Point D);
                     (c)  then north to the north‑eastern boundary corner at 77°31′01.976″S, 167°06′51.074″E (Point B);
                     (d)  then back to Point A.
Mount Melbourne
Mount Melbourne is a stratovolcano located in northern Victoria Land, between Wood Bay and Terra Nova Bay, on the western side of the Ross Sea, and approximately 10 km east of Campbell Glacier.
The site consists of 3 separate locations, 2 on the main summit crater and a third on the north‑western slope of the mountain. On the south‑eastern rim of the main summit crater of Mount Melbourne, there are 2 adjacent designated locations.
The first location (Cryptogam Ridge) is a distinct crescent shaped ridge and consists of areas of snow‑covered unheated ground, snow‑free geothermally‑heated ground and ice‑hummocks covering steam emissions that extends approximately 40 m in all directions from the ridge line.
The boundary (see Map A2) is as follows:
                     (a)  starting at the north‑western boundary corner at 74°21′20.389″S, 164°41′31.652″E (Point 1A), it extends south approximately 50 m to the south‑western boundary corner at 74°21′22.096″S, 164°41′32.551″E (Point 1N);
                     (b)  then east following the crescent shape of Cryptogam Ridge to the following unmarked points:
                              (i)  74°21′21.383″S, 164°41′38.254″E (Point 1M);
                             (ii)  74°21′20.840″S, 164°41′45.230″E (Point 1L);
                            (iii)  74°21′21.220″S, 164°41′49.934″E (Point 1K);
                            (iv)  74°21′21.815″S, 164°41′54.574″E (Point 1J);
                             (v)  74°21′22.588″S, 164°41′58.044″E (Point 1I);
                     (c)  then to the south‑eastern boundary corner at 74°21′24.103″S, 164°42′00.579″E (Point 1H);
                     (d)  then north to the north‑eastern boundary corner at 74°21′23.355″S, 164°42′07.010″E (Point 1G);
                     (e)  then west following the crescent shape of Cryptogam Ridge to the following unmarked points:
                              (i)  74°21′21.523″S, 164°42′03.989″E (Point 1F);
                             (ii)  74°21′20.117″S, 164°41′57.869″E (Point 1E);
                            (iii)  74°21′19.307″S, 164°41′51.137″E (Point 1D);
                            (iv)  74°21′19.153″S, 164°41′45.329″E (Point 1C);
                             (v)  74°21′19.650″S, 164°41′37.695″E (Point 1B);
                      (f)  then back to Point 1A.
Both the northern and southern boundaries are located below the ice‑free ridge.
The second location (Geothermal Slope) on the south‑eastern rim of the main summit crater of Mount Melbourne is adjacent to Cryptogam Ridge on a slope leading up the eastern rim of the summit crater. Geothermal activity is evident on the hill slope as crevasses and ice towers extending up the steep caldera rim, approximately 50 m wide.
The boundary is as follows:
                     (a)  starting at the north‑western boundary corner at 74°21′13.740″S, 164°42′01.816″E (Point 2A), it extends south approximately 50 m to the south‑western boundary corner at 74°21′15.620″S, 164°42′03.474″E (Point 2D);
                     (b)  then east up the slope to the south‑eastern boundary corner at 74°21′14.567″S, 164°42′12.729″E (Point 2C);
                     (c)  then north to the north‑eastern boundary corner at 74°21′12.865″S, 164°42′08.972″E (Point 2B);
                     (d)  then back to Point 2A.
The third location (Northwest Slope) is on the north‑western slopes of the volcano approximately 1.5 km northwest of Cryptogam Ridge. Geothermal activity is evident as a northwest to southeast trending line of ice towers and small patches of bare ground along the edge of a steep cliff. The boundaries for the location were not surveyed in the field but obtained via inference from satellite imagery.
The boundary is as follows:
                     (a)  starting at the north‑western boundary corner at 74°21′00″S, 164°39′02″E (Point 3A), it extends south downslope to the south‑western boundary corner at 74°21′11″S, 164°39′02″E (Point 3D);
                     (b)  then east to the south‑eastern boundary corner at 74°21′11″S, 164°42′05″E (Point 3C);
                     (c)  then north upslope to the north‑eastern boundary corner at 74°21′00″S, 164°40′05″E (Point 3B);
                     (d)  then back to Point 3A.
Mount Rittmann
Mount Rittmann is located in the Mountaineer Range on the southern side of the Aviator Glacier, between the Pilot Glacier and the head of the Icebreaker Glacier in northern Victoria Land. It rises to 2 600 m above sea level, is approximately 103 km north of Mount Melbourne and approximately 50 km inland from the coast.
The site comprises the entire exposed caldera of Mount Rittmann.
The boundary is as follows:
                     (a)  starting at the most westerly boundary corner at the western edge of the caldera rim at 73°28′18.797″S, 165°36′43.851″E (Point A), it follows the caldera rim east to the following unmarked points:
