Ice off the coast of Antartica - November 7th, 2008

In this image we can see some icebergs floating just off the coast of Antartica, in the Kemp Coast region near Cape Boothby.

The Kemp Coast is a part of the antartic shoreline between the Edward VIII Bay and the Bay of William Scoresby, dedicated to the English captain Peter Kemp who explored the region.

Cape Boothby is a rounded cape, along the east side of the coastal projection of Edward VIII Plateau, situated 4 miles north of Kloa Point, just north of Edward VIII Bay.

The icebergs may have come from the nearby Robert or Seaton Glaciers. The Robert Glacier is the eastern of two glaciers entering the southern part of Edward VIII Bay.

The Seaton Glacier is 27km (17 mi) long, flowing southeast into the Edward VIII Ice Shelf at the northwest part of Edward VIII Bay.
