Narrative

La Expedición Antártica Chilena de 1947 la llamó isla Telegta. Arriagada, por el nombre del cabo 2º (Rt) Carlos Arriagada Veas, radiotelegrafista de la Armada de Chile e integrante de la dotación que invernó ese año en la base chilena de Puerto Soberanía. Posteriormente, ha figurado con los nombres isla Arriagada, islote Arriagada y, el actual, isla Barros, que data desde 1962 y que corresponde al apellido del capitán de navío Ramón Barros González, de la Expedición Antártica Chilena de 1958-1959. Isla de aproximadamente 7 cables de extensión, que emerge a 3,3 millas al W de la punta Charles, límite N de la caleta Brialmont, en la costa occidental de la península Tierra de O'Higgins.
