Narrative

Point marking the SW end of Liege Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. The western point of Liege Island was first charted by the FrAE, 1903-05, and named by Charcot for Monsieur Chauveau, an associate of the Central Meteorological Office at Paris. Since there is no prominent point on the central part of the west coast which can be reidentified without ambiguity, the name has been applied to the conspicuous SW point which was also seen by Charcot.
