A gently-sloping ice piedmont at the head of Mobiloil Inlet, formed by the confluence of the Gibbs, Lammers, Cole and Weyerhaeuser Glaciers in eastern Graham Land. The feature was first photographed from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth in Nov. 1935, and was plotted from these photos by W.L.G. Joerg as the lower end of a "major valley depression" along the coast. First seen from the ground by F. Ronne and C.R. Eklund of USAS, 1939-41, which also obtained air photos. Surveyed by the FIDS in Dec. 1958. Named by UK-APC after Gerardus Mercator (1512-94), Flemish mathematician and geographer, originator of the map projection which bears his name, 1568.
