Description (see definition): A broad glacier tongue extending eastward from the Mawson Glacier into the Ross Sea. Discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition (BrNAE) (1901-04) and named for Otto Nordenskjold, Swedish geographer who led an expedition to Antarctica in 1901. This feature had become well established by the name Nordenskjold Ice Tongue prior to initiation of systematic application of common specific names to a glacier and its glacier tongue. Although this feature is a glacier tongue, the generic term ice tongue is retained in the name to reduce ambiguity.
