Narrative

Small cove at the N end of Mikkelsen Bay along the W coast of Graham Land. A moraine descends to the cove from the SW end of Pavie Ridge. The name derives from the provisional name "Moraine Point," used by Prof. Robert L. Nichols of the RARE, who examined the geology of this area in 1947. The name Moraine Cove retains the spirit of the naming by Nichols, and is considered more essential for reference purposes than a name for the moraine itself.
