Narrative

A lake lying W of Hydrographers Cove on Fildes Peninsula, King George Island. The lake was included in SovAE surveys from Bellingshausen Station from 1968 and was called "Ozero Al'batros" by L.S. Govorukha and I.M. Simonov, 1973; later called "Ozero Burevestnik" (petrel lake) in a report by I.M. Simonov, 1975. The US-ACAN has approved the translated form of the latter name as recommended by the UK-APC in 1979.
