Names that other countries have for this feature:
Small bay just W of Strahan Glacier, and 18 mi ESE of Cape Daly. Discovered in February 1931 by the BANZARE under Mawson, who named it after the master of the Norwegian whaler Sir James Clark Ross which transported coal to Antarctic waters for the Discovery. On the map published in the Cape Daly and the Strahan Glacier is called Nielsen Bay. Recent examination of Mawson's notes shows that the bay was placed too far west and the name misspelled.
