Narrative

mainly ice-free W-E valley on E coast of Alexander Island, S of Ablation Point, was photographed from the air by Ellsworth in November 1935 and subsequently mapped by Joerg (1937, map facing p.444); following survey by BGLE in October 1936, named at its mouth Ablation Bay (Rymill, 1938a, p.511) or Ablation Camp (Stephenson and Fleming, 1940, p.160-61 and photograph p.162; Stephenson, 1940, p.173 and map facing p.232), because of the limited snow and ice cover. Ablation Valley (APC, 1955, p.4; DOS 610 sheet W 70 68, 1960). The valley was remapped by a University of Aberdeen party, supported by BAS, in 1978-79 (Sugden and Clapperton, 1980).
