between Roman Four Promontory and Red Rock Ridge, Marguerite Bay, Fallières Coast. The area was roughly charted from a distance by FAE, 1908-10, in January 1909, when the name Fiord Neny (Charcot, 1912, Pl.1) or Fjord Neny (Bongrain, 1914, vue 35 following p.60), probably after a supporter of the expedition, was applied to what was believed to be an extensive fjord running SE from the S side of Square Bay. Neny Fd., referring to the FAE feature (BA chart 3175, 9.x.1914). Following reconnaissance flights and ground survey by BGLE in 1936, the name Neny Fjord was applied to the present feature as being the only large fjord in the area (Rymill, 1938a, p.307-08 and map facing p.432; APC, 1955, p.15; DCS 601 sheet 68 66, 1955).

Neny Fjord (USA) 68° 16' 00.0" S 66° 50' 00.0" W Fjord
Name ID: 129325 Place ID: 10156

Bay 10 mi long in an E-W direction and 5 mi wide, between Red Rock Ridge and Roman Four Promontory on the W coast of Graham Land. This coast was first explored in 1909 by Dr. Jean B. Charcot who, it appears, gave this name to a feature somewhat north of the bay described. The BGLE made a detailed survey of this area in 1936-37, and in correlating their work with that of Charcot applied the name Neny Fjord to the bay between Red Rock Ridge and Roman Four Promontory. The name has become established in this latter position through international acceptance and use.

Name ID: 106002 Place ID: 10156

Esta costa fue explorada en 1909 por el Dr. Jean B. Charcot. Una Expedición Británica hizo un levantamiento detallado del área en 1936-1937, aplicando a este seno el nombre de Neny, que originalmente el Dr. Charcot le había dado a un canal que está 20 millas más al N. Internacionalmente, se ha aceptado y se usa el nombre de seno Neny.
