This name originates from United Kingdom. It is part of the Gazetteer of the British Antarctic Territory and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.
Perennially ice covered, freshwater lake approximately 2x15 km, height approx 2.3-3.9 m asl, depth c 90m, sitting under approx 4 m of lake ice. South of Saturn Glacier and SE of Citadel Bastion, southern Alexander Island. Geomorphological and palaeolimnological evidence suggests that the lake was a subglacial lake during the late Pleistocene until glaciers withdrew during the Holocene deglaciation. Named after Dr D.A. Hodgson, BAS palaeolimnologist, who confirmed the presence of the lake during ground reconnaissance, 18th December 2000 (APC, 2007).
