The northern part of the Antarctic Peninsula stretches beyond the Antarctic Circle to within about 1000 km (621 mi) of the southern tip of South America. Ice shelves along its length are fed by glaciers streaming down from the central ice sheet plateau, which extends as a narrow spine along the central part of the peninsula. These ice shelves are important indicators for on-going climate change.
