Scott Coast

Scott Coast (76°30′S 162°30′E / 76.500°S 162.500°E / -76.500; 162.500Coordinates: 76°30′S 162°30′E / 76.500°S 162.500°E / -76.500; 162.500) is that portion of the coast of Victoria Land between Cape Washington and Minna Bluff. Named by New Zealand Antarctic Place-Names Committee (NZ-APC) in 1961 after Captain Robert Falcon Scott, Royal Navy, leader of the Discovery expedition (1901–04) and the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-13), who lost his life on the return journey from the South Pole. Much of the early exploration of this coastline was accomplished by Scott and his colleagues, and many of the names in the region were bestowed by him.
