Names that other countries have for this feature:
An inlet approximately 9 miles long and 7.5 miles wide between Whiteside Hill and Shiver Point, Oscar II Coast. The inlet coincides with the southeast part of the ice-covered feature photographed from the air by Sir Hubert Wilkins, December 20, 1928, to which he applied the name "Hektoria Fiords" after the whaling factory ship Hektoria, which transported his expedition to Deception Island. The nature of the feature was altered, revealing open water, by the retreat of the lower parts of Hektoria, Green and Evans Glacier, which followed the calving of the Larsen Ice Shelf in the area in March 2002. Named by UK-APC (2008) after David G. Vaughan, Honorary Professor of Geography, Swansea University; BAS Principal Investigator 1999-2008; BAS glaciologist, 1986-99, who has been in the forefront of investigations into the movement and break-up of the Antarctic ice sheet.
