The South Sandwich Islands lie between lats. 56° 18′ S. and 59° 28′ S., and between longs. 26° 14′ W., and 28° 11′ W. There are eleven islands, of which ten form a curved chain stretching north and south while the eleventh, Leskov Island, lies to the west of the group near its northern end. The group is the only typical volcanic island arc in the Antarctic region and forms the easternmost section of the Scotia Arc; to the east it is bounded by the associated deep South Sandwich Trench.
