These are a very interesting group; they include eleven islands, eight of which are volcanically active.
When we get to Zavodovski, we will be looking for relatively shallow water where we can make bottom trawls.
The bathymetric charts are not very accurate for such remote regions, and we expect that those for Bouvetoya, the next island we will visit, will be even less useful.

Notice how the size of the waves as well as the angle they form coming off the islands correlates to the height of the islands.
For example, the peak on Zavodovski, the northernmost of the islands, stands at 1,807 feet (551 m), while the peak on Visokoi, the island just south of it, is 3,295 feet (1,005 m) tall.
The taller Visokoi peak produces a more substantial wake pattern.
