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.

Name Latitude Longitude Feature Type
Moraine Cove (GBR) 68° 36' 00.0" S 67° 07' 00.0" W Cove
Name ID: 110225 Place ID: 9818

NE side of Mikkelsen Bay, Fallières Coast. Following survey and geological work by RARE in 1947, the name Moraine Point was applied to the end of the moraine descending from Pavie Ridge to the NE (Nichols, 1955, map Fig. 2 and p.13); following further survey by FIDS from "Stonington Island", 1948-49, the name Moraine Cove was applied to the present feature (Adie, 1954, p.13; APC, 1955, p.15; DCS 601 sheet 68 66, 1955).

Moraine Cove (USA) 68° 35' 00.0" S 67° 08' 00.0" W Cove
Name ID: 129080 Place ID: 9818

Small cove at the N end of Mikkelsen Bay along the W coast of Graham Land. A moraine descends to the cove from the SW end of Pavie Ridge. The name derives from the provisional name "Moraine Point," used by Prof. Robert L. Nichols of the RARE, who examined the geology of this area in 1947. The name Moraine Cove retains the spirit of the naming by Nichols, and is considered more essential for reference purposes than a name for the moraine itself.
