Narrative

Descubierta probablemente por una Expedición Germana de 1873-1874 al mando de comandante Eduard Dallman. Cartografiada por la Expedición Antártica Francesa de 1903-1905 al mando del Dr. Jean B. Charcot, quien le dio el nombre del vicealmirante Ernest Fournier, de la Armada Francesa. Bahía de aproximadamente 8 millas de largo, por 4 millas de ancho, en la costa E de la isla Anvers y a 7,5 millas al NW de punta Van Ryswyck en el archipiélago de Palmer. Las costas de la bahía están formadas por acantilados de hielo con inmensos descargues de glaciares. La bahía se presenta cubierta de hielos flotantes que dificultan la navegación.
