in Gilbert Strait, between Trinity Island and Tower Island, Palmer Archipelago, were roughly charted by Johannessen, 1919-20, and, together with Ryge Rocks and Sven Rock, called Trinity Land (Johannessen, chart, [1919-20]); photographed from the air by FIDASE in 1956 and, in association with Ryge Rocks and Sven Rock (q.v.), named after the Danish freighter Oluf Sven (Kapt. J.C. Ryge), which transported FIDASE to Deception Island in 1955 and 1956, and was used as a mobile base of operations by ground survey parties during two summer seasons (APC, 1960, p.6; BA chart 3205, 23.xi.1962).
