Narrative

between Tashtego Point and Chapman Point, NW of Jason Peninsula, Oscar II Coast, was roughly surveyed by SwAE in 1902 and called Scott Bucht, Scotts Bukt or Golfo Scott after Capt. R.F. Scott, RN (Mount Scott, q.v.) (Nordenskjöld and others, 1904b, Vol.2, first end map; 1904a, Del. 1, end map; 1904c, map p.232-33). Bahía de Scott, referring in part to this feature (Nordenskjöld and others, 1904-05, Tomo 1, end map). Scott Bay (Nordenskjöld and others, 1905, map facing p.316; [in c. 65°30'S 62°00'W] BA chart 3175, 1934; 1.iii.1940). Bahía Scott (Riso Patron S., 1908, end map; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.255). Golfe Scott (Gourdon, 1908, p.51). Scott Bocht (Knapp, 1958, p.209). Following survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in 1961, the feature was named Scar Inlet after the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (formerly Special Committee on Antarctic Research, 1957-61) of the International Council of Scientific Unions, in recognition of the important role played by this organization (APC, 1964, p.4; BA chart 3175, 7.xii.1984).
