A large west-facing cirque containing Schussel Moraine, in the north-central part of the Humboldt Mountains of Queen Maud Land. Discovered by the GerAE under Ritscher, 1938-39, who referred to it as "In der Schussel" (in the bowl) and "Grosse Brei-Schussel" (great mash bowl). The US-ACAN has recommended a shorter form of the original names and has added the appropriate generic term.
