SHORT INFORMATION

Geography of Falkland Islands

The Falkland Islands are located in the South Atlantic Ocean on a projection of the Patagonian continental shelf about 250 nautical miles (288 mi; 463 km) from the Patagonia coastline and slightly to the north of the southerly tip of Cape Horn and of its undersea extension, the Scotia Arc. In ancient geological time this shelf was part of Gondwana, which around 400 million years ago broke from what is now Africa and drifted westwards relative to Africa.

Climate of Falkland Islands

The Falkland Islands have a Maritime Subarctic climate that is very much influenced by the cool South Atlantic ocean and its northerly Patagonian current giving it a narrow annual temperature range.
