Description (see definition): Small group of rocky islands at the NE end of the Geologie Archipelago, 2.5 mi N of Astrolabe Glacier Tongue. A French expedition under Captain Jules Dumont d'Urville landed on one of these islands in 1840. The islands were roughly charted by the Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE), 1911-14, under Mawson, who named them after C.A. Vincendon-Dumoulin of the French expedition who conducted observations on terrestrial magnetism in this locality. The group was photographed from the air by U.S. Navy (USN) OpHjp, 1946-47, and recharted by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Liotard, 1949-51.
