They lie just E of Cranton Bay and Pine Island Bay at the E extremity of Amundsen Sea, and are bounded on the N by Cosgrove Ice Shelf and on the S by Pine Island Glacier. Discovered by members of the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS) in flights from the USS Bear in February 1940, and further delineated from air photos taken by U.S. Navy (USN) OpHjp in December 1946. The full extent of the group was mapped by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from U.S. Navy (USN) air photos of 1966. Named by US-SCAN after Captain William L. Hudson, commander of the Peacock during U.S. Exploring Expedition (USEE), 1838-42. The Peacock, accompanied by the Flying Fish under Lieutenant Walker, cruised along the edge of the pack to the N of this area for several days during the latter part of March 1839.
