This sheet provides an updated geological map of the South Orkney Islands incorporating recent geological observations with survey work from the 1960s to the 1980s. The South Orkney microcontinent, originally contiguous with the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, was separated as a result of the formation of the Powell Basin during the separation of Antarctica from South America and the opening of the Drake Passage.
