Narrative

one of the Bennett Islands (q.v.), Hanusse Bay, Loubet Coast, was called Isla Fresia by CAE, 1947, after the Chilean submarine Fresia (Chile. DNH chart LII, 1947; IHA, 1974, p.44); also called Islote Chayter by AAE probably after a member of the expedition (Argentina. MM, 1957a, p.3); in association with the names of glaciologists grouped in this area, named after Johannes Otto Conrad Mügge (1858-1932), German mineralogist who in 1895 made pioneer studies of the plasticity of ice (APC, 1960, p.6; BA, 1961, p.190; BAS 250P sheet SQ 19-20/10, 1-DOS 1979).
