The inlet lies in the area explored from the air by Sir Hubert Wilkins in 1928 and Lincoln Ellsworth in 1935, but it was first charted by the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS) in 1940. It was resighted by the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE), 1947-48, under Ronne, who named it for Roger Revelle, oceanographer at the Scripps Institute for Oceanographic Research, who gave technical assistance during the fitting out of the Ronne expedition.
