Correction of Charlier, R.H., 2010. Philatelic panorama of some Belgian Antarctic marine contributions, 19th–21st centuries: from Belgica to Princess Elisabeth. Journal of Coastal Research, 26(2), 359–376.
This note pertains to the article on Philatelic Panorama of some Belgian Antarctic Marine Contributions recently published in the JCR. This is in fact not an error of editor, printer, or author, rather it is the consequence of the on-going carrousel of name changes. The main Romanian marine station on the shores of the Black Sea used to be the Romanian Marine Research Institute. It is now known as Marine Research & Development Institute “Grigore Antipa.”
A real faux-pas was made in footnote 4 and we must render unto Cesar his due. Racovitza, undubitably a pioneer of oceanography, is not the founder of the earliest Romanian marine research station, and credit for that achievement must be given to G. Antipa—whose name is now part of Mamaia's station—and to I. Borcea whom it is that launched the Agigea research facility. (Ioan Borcea and the first Romanian zoological station at Agigea (1926): Noesis 29, 163–174 (Bologa, A.S., Bologa, A.F., Charlier, R.H.).
Another unfortunate error slipped in: the Ile de Liège was mentioned as the alma mater of de Gerlache. It was named to honor the alma mater of Arctowski.
