The Ross Dependency is that slice of the Antarctic continent over which New
Zealand claims jurisdiction, and it stretches from 160 degrees east to 150 degrees
west of the Greenwich meridian. Its biggest geographical feature is the massive
Ross Ice Shelf. Habitations include Scott Base (NZ) and McMurdo Sound (USA).
