Names that other countries have for this feature:
An ice shelf, about 30 mi long and 10 mi wide, nourished by the Priestley and Reeves Glaciers and abutting the N side of Drygalski Ice Tongue, along the coast of Victoria Land. This feature was explored by the South Magnetic Polar Party of the BrAE, 1907-09, and by the Northern Party of the BrAE, 1910-13. Frank Debenham, geologist with the latter expedition, applied the name "Nansen Sheet" as the feature is adjacent to Mount Nansen, the dominating summit in the area.
