Description (see definition): Group of rocky, irregular islands which extends about 11 mi in an E-W direction, lying in the S part of the entrance to Edward VlII Bay. First sighted in February 1936 by DI personnel on the William Scoresby, and considered by them to be part of the mainland. They were charted as islands by Norwegian cartographers from aerial photographs taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition in January-February 1937, and named Oygarden, a descriptive term for a protective chain of islands lying along and off the coast.
