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.

between Cape Adams and Cape Schlossbach, Lassiter Coast, was seen from the air by RARE, 21 November 1947 (Ronne, 1948, p.372), and surveyed from the ground in its N part by FIDS-RARE from "Stonington Island" in December 1947; called American Geographical Society Bay, while the name Irvine Gardner Glacier was applied to Ketchum Glacier (q.v.), after Dr Irvine Clifton Gardner (1889-1972), physicist and specialist in optics as applied to air photography, National Bureau of Standards, Washington, DC, and a member of the American Antarctic Association Inc., set up to assist RARE (AGS map, 1948). The latter name, in the form Gardner Bay, was subsequently transferred to the present feature (Ronne, 1948, map p.357; 1949, photograph p.205). Gardner-Bukten (Rønne, 1950, p.135). Bahía Gardner (Argentina. MM chart N-"P"-1, 1952). Gardner Inlet (BA chart 3175, 12.xi.1954; APC, 1955, p.10; [referring only to the N part] USHO chart 6638, 1955; DOS 601 sheet W 74 62, 1958; [as now defined] USGS sketch map Ellsworth Land-Palmer Land, 1969; BAS 500P sheet SS 17-20/SE, 1-DOS 1981). Ensenada Gardner (Argentina. MM, 1957, p.5; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.135). Gardiner [sic] Inlet (Ronne, 1961, map Front.). Zaliv Gardner (Soviet Union. MMF chart, 1961). The inlet was photographed from the air by USN, 1965-67, and mapped from air photographs by USGS. Ledyanoy Zaliv Gardner (Soviet Union. AA, 1966, Pl.24). Seno Gardner, as rejected form (Chile. IHA, 1974, p.135).

Gardner Inlet (USA) 74° 58' 00.0" S 62° 52' 00.0" W Inlet
Name ID: 125535 Place ID: 5124

Large, ice-filled inlet at the SW side of Bowman Peninsula, on the E coast of Palmer Land. Discovered by the RARE, 1947-48, under Ronne, who named it for Irvine C. Gardner, physicist at the National Bureau of Standards, and member of the American Antarctic Assn., Inc., the organization set up to make plans and preparations for the expedition. His work in the field of optics as applied to aerial photography has been an important contribution to this technique in polar exploration.
