A body of water running NW-SE between Lavoisier Island and Krogh Island to NE and Watkins Island to SW, in the Biscoe Islands. Mapped from aerial photographs taken by FIDASE, 1956-57. In association with the names of pioneers in cold climate physiology grouped in this area, named "Lewis Passage" by UK-APC (1960) after Sir Thomas Lewis (1882-1945), English physiologist who investigated the responses of the blood vessels of the skin to environmental temperature; later renamed Lewis Sound as the feature does not provide safe passage for a ship.
