Names that other countries have for this feature:
A high, ice covered island about 8 mi N of Novyy Island, at the juncture of the Jelbart and Fimbul Ice Shelves, Queen Maud Land. The island rises about 300 m above the general level of the ice shelf and is surrounded by this ice, except for the N side which borders the sea. The feature was roughly delineated by Norwegian cartographers working with air photos taken by NBSAE in 1951-52 and NorAE in 1958-59. They called the island Blaskimen and included the area now called Novyy Island. The SovAE mapped the feature in 1961 and showed it to be separated from Novyy Island.
