Narrative

Formerly the mainly floating extension of Sjögren Glacier (q.v.), Trinity Peninsula, following survey by FIDS, 1960-61, was so named in association with the glacier. Reported to have disappeared, February 1994. Landsat 7 ETM satellite imagery confirmed this, February 2000. The area is now covered by the Prince Gustav Channel (q.v.). Formerly, the feature was a tongue of ice between 5 and 7 miles wide, extending 15 miles from Sjögren Glacier across Prince Gustav Channel toward Persson Island. The description was revised 17 July 2007.
