Names that other countries have for this feature:
An island of irregular shape, 1 mile long, with Norsel Point at the narrow W extremity. The island lies between Loudwater Cove and Arthur Harbor and close off Anvers Island in Palmer Archipelago. This feature was mapped as a point of land from Anvers Island for decades because Marr Ice Piedmont covered its eastern part. A rapid recession of the Marr Ice Piedmont in 2005 created an eastern channel several hundred meters wide revealing the actuality of the island. The name Norsel Point is retained for the island's western point. The island was named by US-ACAN in 2007 after Charles D. Amsler and Margaret O. Amsler, husband and wife USAP marine biologists in the Anvers Island area for three decades from 1979.
