The aim of this work is to describe and map the main landforms and cryogenic features of Keller Peninsula, King George Island in 1:5000 scale and study the relationship between landscape and soil formation in this part of Maritime Antarctica. The relationship between the ice retreat process, melt-out, landform development and soil distribution is analysed. Moraines, protalus, scree slopes, inactive glacial cirques, uplift marine terraces, biogenic landforms, arêtes and Felsenmeer were mapped
