Narrative

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, off the southern end of Anvers Island, 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 island. The island was named by US-ACAN in 2007 after Charles W. Amsler and Margaret Amsler, husband and wife USAP marine biologists in the Anvers Island area for three decades from 1979 (APC, 2008).
