Names that other countries have for this feature:
A glacier tongue that is the prominent seaward extension of the David Glacier into the Ross Sea. It ranges from 9 to 15 mi wide and is over 30 mi long. Capt. R.F. Scott, leader of the BrNAE, discovered this feature in January 1902 and named it for Prof. Erich von Drygalski, a contemporary German explorer then in Antarctica. This feature became well established by the name Drygalski Ice Tongue prior to initiation of systematic application of common specific names to a glacier and its glacier tongue. Although this feature is a glacier tongue, the generic term ice tongue has been retained in the name to reduce ambiguity.
