Narrative

A gently sloping beach on the south shore of Explorers Cove, New Harbour, on the Scott Coast of Victoria Land. Feature depicted on: NZ AntTopo50-ME10

Named For

Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) after Baldo Marinovic, graduate student (biology), University of California, Santa Cruz, and member of the 1985 winter party at McMurdo Station. During 1984-85, the sea off this beach was a site for the study of reproductive biology and larval ecology of shallow-water echinoderms by biologists of the University of California, Santa Cruz. The name came into local use following the selection of the beach by Marinovic, correctly, as a likely place to study echinoderms.
