CHALLENGER. X.—ROCKS OF HEARD ISLAND. After completing the exploration of Kerguelens Land, the Challenger Expeditionturned to McDonald and Heard Islands. The sea-bottom between these groups is very-irregular and rocky. On the way to Heard Island the Challenger, on February 5, 1873,passed to the north of the almost inaccessible islands of McDonald. A landing wasmade on Heard Island, and Mr. Buchanan examined the coast and the rocks descendingto the sea. This island, remarkable for its glacial and volcanic phenomena, wasdiscovered in November 1855 by Captain Heard, in command of the United Statesship- Oriental. According to the Challenger observations, Cape Laurens, the north-west point of the island, is situated in latitude 53° 2 45 S., longitude 73° 15 30 E.</i>

The greatest length from north-west to south-east is 25 miles, its greatest breadth9 miles, and its area about 100 square miles. The southern extremity, rising towardsthe east, forms a long and narrow promontory.

The shore of Corinthian Bay is flat, and is covered with blackvolcanic sand, largely composed of magnetite ; this sandy strip stretches for about halfa mile from the sea to the head of the glaciers.
