Förster Cliffs

The Förster Cliffs (64°1′S57°33′W / 64.017°S 57.550°W / -64.017; -57.550) are a set of cliffs located east-northeast of Stark Point, running east–west for 2 nautical miles (4 km) and rising to 550 metres (1,800 ft) in northern James Ross Island. They were named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee in 1987 after Reinhard Förster (1935–87), a West German geologist from the University of Munich, who was a member of the British Antarctic Survey field party to the area, 1985–86.[1]
