Narrative

Cape fringed by rocks, marking the W side of the entrance to Charcot Bay on the W coast of Graham Land. This coast was sketched by a British expedition 1828-31, under Foster, who named a cape in this region after Capt. Henry Kater, a member of the committee which planned the expedition. This region was more fully mapped by the SwedAE, 1901-04, under Nordenskjold, who gave the name Cape Gunnar to this cape. The name Kater perpetuates the earlier naming.
