It is over 1000 kilometres inland, high on the Antarctic plateau at an altitude of 3233 metres, at the location called Dome C. It is a permanent, all- year research station, the third to be built in Antarctica. It is jointly operated and run by France and Italy. The location is used for meteorological and glaciological research, and also for astronomical research using the telescopes that have been constructed here.
