Ice-covered plateau, at least 90 mi long and about 1,830 m high, extending NE from the heads of Gould and Erskine Glaciers to the vicinity of Flandres Bay, in Graham Land. The first sighting of this plateau has not been ascertained, but it was presumably seen in January 1909 by members of the FrAE under Charcot from their position in Pendleton Strait. The plateau was mapped from aerial photographs and FIDS surveys, 1946-62. Named by UK-APC after William S. Bruce, Scottish polar explorer and leader of the ScotNAE, 1902-04.
