This name originates from Australia. It is part of the Australian Antarctic Gazetteer and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.
Algae River is a drainage system, centred on Algae Lake, that connects a series of epiglacial lakes along the southern margin of the Bunger Hills to Algae Lake and then to Transkriptsii Gulf. The length of the river is approximately 25 km in total, making it the third longest terrestrial drainage system known in Antarctica.
The full extent of the terrestrial portion of the Algae River system was investigated in January 2000 by Dr J.A.E. Gibson. Earlier observations had been made by Dr D.B. Gore.
