Narrative

Ice piedmont, 27 mi long in a NE-SW direction and 12 mi wide in its widest part, occupying the NW coastal area of Alexander Island. First seen from a distance and roughly surveyed by the FrAE, 1908-10, under Charcot. Photographed from the air by the BGLE on Aug. 15, 1936, and roughly mapped from these photos. Named by the UK-APC in 1954 for Maurice Bongrain, surveyor of the FrAE, 1908-10, who was responsible for the first map of this coast.
