Narrative

A sound between the southern part of the Biscoe Islands and the coast of Graham Land; northern limit Cape Evensen to Cape Leblond, southern limit Holdfast Point, Roux Island, Liard Island and Sillard Islands. So named by UK-APC in 1960 because many features in the sound are named for men who have undertaken research on the structure of ice crystals.
