Narrative

An area of the Larsen Ice Shelf immediately NW of Jason Peninsula. It is bounded by Tashtego Point and Chapman Point. Discovered in 1902 by Otto Nordenskjold, leader of the Swedish Antarctic Expedition, 1901-04, who gave the name "Scott Bay." That name has not survived in usage, perhaps due to the large number of features already named after Capt. Robert F. Scott. The present name was given by UK-APC (1963) after the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research of the International Council of Scientific Unions, in recognition of the role of this organization in furthering scientific research in the Antarctic.
