Arthur Island’s Arctic history

Located north of Zemlya Georga in the Queen Victoria Sea, Arthur Island is one of Franz Josef Land’s 192 islands and is almost entirely glaciated. English explorer Frederick George Jackson named Arthur Island after his brother, Arthur Jackson, during the Jackson-Harmsworth Polar Expedition.
