Terra Nova Bay in the
Ross Sea region of Antarctica is named by Captain Scott after
one of the relief ships during his 1901-1904 expedition
to the area. The Terra Nova was then used again on the ill fated
1911-1913 South Pole expedition.
The bay, an often ice-free area
about 40 miles long is overlooked by the active volcano Mount
Melbourne. It also has the Italian summer-only Zuchelli Station
which is situated amongst some stunning scenery.
