SAS Juan Carlos I
Spanish Antarctic Station (SAS) Juan Carlos I, managed by CSIC, opened on January 1988 and is considered as a Great Scientific Facility by the Ministry of Science and Technology. The station is only inhabited during the southern summer, from mid-November to mid-March, although automated registers are kept running all year long. Like the other Spanish Antarctic facilities, it aims at supporting our country's activities in Antarctica. More specifically, it aims at carrying out scientific research projects within the Antarctic Research Sub-programme of the National Natural Resources Programme.
It is located on the south-eastern coast of South Bay, in Hurd Peninsula, Livingston Island (South Shetland Islands), 20 miles-navigation far from the Spanish station Gabriel de Castilla, located in Deception Island.
