SCAR Gazetteer Information: Each place can have one or more entries in the SCAR Composite Gazetteer, dependant on its origin. By viewing an individual entry, you may see multiple references to the same place. SCAR uses a more general feature type coding, so each place will, in general, have multiple feature types.

flowing E into Larsen Ice Shelf N of Foyn Point, Oscar II Coast, was seen from the air as an inlet by Wilkins, 20 December 1928, and named Evans Inlet after Edward Steptoe Evans (1879-1945), manufacturer of Detroit, Mich.; Manager, Detroit Arctic Expedition, 1925-26 (Wilkins, 1929, p.364; BA chart 3175, 1.iii.1940; APC, 1955, p.9); surveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in November 1947. Estrecho Evans (Chile. DNH chart LI, 1947). Ensenada Evans (Argentina. MM chart 110, 1949; Pierrou, 1970, p.352; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.119). The feature was resurveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in September 1955 and recognized as a glacier; renamed Evans Glacier (APC, 1958, p.4; BA chart 3570, 29.ix.1961). Lednik Evansa (Soviet Union.

Evans Glacier (USA) 65° 05' 00.0" S 61° 40' 00.0" W Glacier
Name ID: 124914 Place ID: 4375

A gently-sloping glacier 15 mi long and 4 mi wide, flowing eastward from the plateau escarpment to join Hektoria Glacier between Shiver Point and Whiteside Hill, on the E coast of Graham Land. Discovered by Sir Hubert Wilkins in an aerial flight, Dec. 20, 1928, and named Evans Inlet by him for E.S. Evans of Detroit. A further survey by the FIDS in 1955 reported that this low-lying area is not an inlet, but is formed by the lower reaches of Hektoria Glacier and the feature now described.

Evans, ensenada (ARG) 65° 05' 00.0" S 61° 35' 00.0" W Glacier
Name ID: 100840 Place ID: 4375

Evans, Ensenada (CHL) 65° 06' 30.0" S 61° 21' 00.0" W Glacier
Name ID: 105520 Place ID: 4375

Descubierta por Sir Hubert Wilkins durante un vuelo el 20 de diciembre de 1928. El nombre se lo dio el mismo Sir Hubert y corresponde al apellido de E.S. Evans de Detroit. La ensenada fue reavistada y cartografiada por el FIDS en 1947. Ensenada circular, de unas 9 millas de diámetro, ubicada entre la punta Shiver y la punta Whiteside, en la costa E de la península Tierra de O'Higgins. Existe la presunción de que este accidente no sería una ensenada, sino la desembocadura de un glaciar del mismo.
