Most northerly point of land

The most northerly point of land on earth is a contentious issue due to variation of definition. Issues of how permanent some of the contenders are is problematic as ice sheets and the shallow water depth make movement and inundation combined with observational difficulties due to remoteness, make any hard determination difficult. The following table sets out the main contenders for this title.
