Notes The wetland areas were compiled by Dr Jenny Scott using 1987 aerial photography, 1988 and 1991 SPOT satellite imagery and 2003 Quickbird satellite imagery. These areas are approximate only due to the dynamic nature of the Heard Island environment, particularly areas affected by glacial retreat and coastal erosion.
