Names that other countries have for this feature:
Low, snow-covered promontory 7 mi wide and extending some 10 mi SE from the E coast of Graham Land. The ice surface is highest in the W, where it rises to about 395 m and is broken by Borchgrevink and Gemini Nunataks. The SwedAE under Nordenskjold, 1901-04, reported an ice wall or glacial terrace in the vicinity of Borchgrevink Nunatak. Although unable to determine its nature, Nordenskjold named the feature Philippigletscher, after Emil Philippi. It was determined to be a snow-covered promontory by the FIDS during their 1947 survey of this coast.
