Names that other countries have for this feature:
A severely disturbed area in the Brunt Ice Shelf, which is assumed to be aground and pushed upward in this vicinity. It covers an area 3 by 2 miles. In 1957 the maximum elevation above the general surface of the ice shelf was about 18 meters, a few hundred meters from the ice front. The Royal Society IGY expeditions occupied a base nearby (1955-59) and were familiar with this feature. It has now been identified with "Allan McDonald Glacier" reported by Shackleton's expediton in January 1915. For the sake of historical continuity the UK-APC has given the name McDonald to these ice rumples. Allan McDonald of the British Association of Magallanes at Punta Arenas was chiefly responsible for raising funds for sending the Emma on the third attempt, in July 1916, to rescue the 22 men of the Endurance left on Elephant Island.
