Description (see definition): A large iceberg tongue that extends seaward from the vicinity of Cape Morse and Cape Carr on the east side of Porpoise Bay. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) for Gardner D. Blodgett, Office of Geography, Department of Interior, who, in 1955, prepared a sketch map of the coastal features of Antarctica between 84E and 144E from U.S. Navy (USN) Operation Highjump (1946-47) aerial photographs. Since the iceberg tongue was partially delineated for the first time on the 1955 sketch map by Blodgett, use of his name for it is considered appropriate.
