Adelie Land (French: Terre Adelie) is a claimed territory on the continent of Antarctica. |
It stretches from a portion of the Southern Ocean coastline all the way inland to the South Pole.
France has administered it as one of five districts of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands since 1955
and applied the Antarctic Treaty System rules since 1961. Article 4 deals with territorial claims, and although it does not
renounce or diminish any preexisting claims to sovereignty, it also does not prejudice the position of Contracting Parties
in their recognition or non-recognition of territorial sovereignty. France has had a permanent station in AdÃ©lie Land since
April 9, 1950. The current Dumont d'Urville Station has a winter population around 33, but this goes up to about 78
during the Antarctic summer.
