The coast in this area is bounded by several large ice-covered islands and the very extensive Getz Ice Shelf. This coast was sighted by members of the USAS, 1939-41, and was charted in part from air photos taken by USN Operation HighJump, 1946-47, both expeditions led by Admiral R.E. Byrd. The USGS completely mapped the coast from ground surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1959-66. Named by US-ACAN for R. Admiral Fred E.
