Narrative

Ice-covered plateau, about 40 mi long and rising to c. 2,000 m, midway between Loubet Coast and Foyn Coast in Graham Land. The first sighting of this plateau is not ascertained, but it was presumably seen in January and February of 1909 by members of the FrAE under Charcot from various positions in Matha Strait. It was surveyed in 1946-47 by the FIDS. Named by UK-APC (1955) after Capt. George Avery, Master of the cutter Lively, who, with Capt. John Biscoe in the brig Tula, approached this part of Antarctic Peninsula in February 1832.
