Özet

Here, a geomorphological map of Horseshoe Island, which is one of the most ice-free islands in Marguerite Bay of the Antarctic Peninsula, is provided. The landforms on the island were mapped by using Google Earth images. Field reconnaissance of the landforms was carried out in March 2018. The island is subdivided into three major geomorphologically different sectors. The northern sector is mostly covered by a remnant of a non-erosive ice cap and has limited glacial landforms and deposits. The central sector is rich in terms of glacial and periglacial landforms and deposits. Glaciers are still sculpting the southern sector and it has extensive features of glacial erosion and deposition. The most common landforms on the island are talus cones, moraines, patterned ground, and raised beaches. The geomorphological map of the island will be a useful base for further geomorphic and/or glaciologic research in this climate-sensitive region.

This study was carried under the auspices of Turkish Republic Presidency, supported by the Ministry of Science, Industry, and Technology, and coordinated by Istanbul Technical University (ITU) Polar Research Center (PolReC). I would like to thank Attila Çiner for his company during fieldworks and for providing some of the pictures. I would also like to express my gratitude to Burak Karacık for providing some photos of the taken during the first Turkish Antarctic Expedition in April 2017. Many thanks to Manja Žebre and Uroš Stepišnik for their comments on the main map and the manuscript of the paper and further thanks to Chandra Jayasuriya, Mauro Guglielmin, Jasper Knight, John Abraham, Jeronimo Lopez-Martinez, David Edward Sugden and Brent Ward for their useful and constructive evaluations that significantly improved the manuscript.
