Narrative

Chenal situé entre l'île des Pétrels au nord-ouest, l'îlot du Marégraphe et les îles Le Mauguen (anciennement Alexis-Carrel) et Jean-Rostand au sud-est, dans l'archipel de Pointe-Géologie. Nom consacré par l'usage en référence au nom du capitaine Willem Pedersen, commandant le Magga Dan, navire de relève des expéditions antarctiques françaises, qui, le premier, lors de la campagne en terre Adélie de l'été austral 1961-62, utilisa ce chenal pour pénétrer au coeur de l'archipel de Pointe-Géologie, et mouiller dans la baie du Pré.
