Narrative

The narrow crescent-shaped moraine reef off the NW coast of Emona Anchorage in Eastern Livingstone Island. Extending over 600 m in NE-SW direction. Partly exposed at low tide and submerged at high tide but for the islet rising to near 3 m at its NE extremity. Its midpoint is located 2,850 m NNW of Herperides Point, 3,120 m W of Aleko Rock and 3,350 m NE by E of Ereby Point. A 710 m wide cove is indenting for 250 m the coast behind Rongel Reef, the NE side of its entrance formed by a nameless ice-free tipped cape located 75 m NNE of the NE extremity of Rongel Reef, 3,140 m NNW of Herperides Point and 2,920 m W of Aleko Rock. The SW extremity of Rongel Reef is located 300 m SE of the nameless point forming the NW side of the entrance to Emona Anchorage and located 3,180 m NW by N of Hesperides Point and 3,040 m NE by E of Ereby Point. Emerged during a recent glacier retreat. Named for the Brazilian Navy ship Ary Rongel, in recognition of her logistic support for the Bulgarian Antarctic campaigns.
