Notes Belgica information: Emile Danco was one of the members of the first expedition of the Belgica. He died during that expedition.    
Belgica information: That portion of the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula between Cape Sterneck and Cape Renard. This coast was explored in Jan. and Feb. of 1898 by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition under Adrien de Gerlache, who named that part of Palmer Peninsula for Lt. Emile Danco, responsible for the geomagnetic observations on the expedition and who died during the expedition on June 5 1898. The name for the land was later restricted to the coast only.
