Description (see definition): Small archipelago of rocky islands and rocks close N of Cape Geodesie and Astrolabe Glacier Tongue, extending from Helene Island on the W to Dumoulin Islands on the east. The French expedition under Captain Jules Dumont d'Urville landed on Debarquement Rock in the Dumoulin Islands in January 1840. Because rock samples were obtained, they gave the name "Pointe Geologie" to a coastal feature charted as lying S of Debarquement Rock. The archipelago was delineated, in part, from air photos taken by U.S. Navy (USN) OpHjp, 1946-47. Following surveys by French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) parties during the 1950-52 period, the French gave the name "Archipel de Pointe Geologie" to the entire archipelago, as d'Urville's coastal feature is believed to correlate with portions of the cluster of islands close N of Astrolabe Glacier Tongue.
