Narrative

ice cap running E-W and rising to 1035m in central Trinity Peninsula, probably forms the greater part of the feature called Meseta General Barrios by CAE in 1948, after General Guillermo Barrios Tirado, Chilean Minister of National Defence at the time (Chile. IGM, 1948b, sketch panorama following p.56); following survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay", 1960-61, named Laclavère Plateau after Georges R. Laclavère (1906-1994), French cartographer and President of SCAR, 1958-63 (APC, 1964, p.3; BAS 250 sheet SP 21-22/13, 1-DOS 1974); photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57.
