Narrative

Small meltwater lake between the lower parts of Joyce and Garwood Glaciers in Victoria Land. It was first seen on the ground by U.S. geologist Troy L. Pewe on Jan. 14, 1958. He gave it the name Colleen because the feature is similar to many of the clear, reflecting lakes in Ireland. Large lake, 1 km by 0.5 km, located 2 mi E of Pewe Peak in upper Garwood Valley, Victoria Land. Named by NZGB in 1994 for the brown foam which gathers at the W end of the lake. The 1995 BGN decision for Foam Lake was made in error.
