Names that other countries have for this feature:
Strait lying between Adelaide Island and the S end of the Biscoe Islands. The strait takes its name from Matha Bay, the name originally applied by Charcot, leader of the FrAE, 1908-10, to the water feature as he conceived it. The BGLE under Rymill, 1934-37, recognizing that it is really a strait rather than a bay, changed the name to Matha Strait. Named for Lt. A. Matha, second-in-command of the FrAE, 1903-05, under Charcot.
