"Island about 150 m wide off the east coast of Adelaide Island. Surveyed by FIDS from ""Stonington Island"" in September 1948 and photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57; in association with the names of glaciologists grouped in this area, named after Prof. Hans Mothes (b.1902), German glaciologist of Göttingen who, with B. Brockhamp (Brockhamp Islands, q.v.), made the first seismic sounding of a glacier, in Austria in 1926. The isthmus previously named Mothes Point became a true island in about 1999. By April 2016 the channel between the island and Adelaide Island had widened to about 150 metres."
