Recent geomorphological research in the ice-free areas of West Antarctica and the subantarctic islands has begun to provide an outline glacial chronology that helps our understanding of the late Quaternary history of ice sheets. However, there is a need for detailed studies of the glacial history of the Antarctic Peninsula area and its offshore islands before a general chronology can be fully reliable. In particular, evidence of Neoglacial glacial fluctuations in the area are imperfectly known in spite of work by Sugden & Clapperton (1977) on island groups in the Scotia Sea, Clapperton et al. (1978) on South Georgiaand Clapperton & Sugden (1982) on Alexander Island. The aim of this note is to present data relating to Holocene glacier fluctuations from the hitherto unstuded Brabant Island (64°15′S, 62°3′W).
