Description (see definition): A thin, sinuous medial moraine that arcs smoothly for 6 mi from a point near Mount Razorback to beyond the far (NE) side of Black Pudding Peak, in Prince Albert Mountains, Victoria Land. Its curved trajectory marks the contact between Benson Glacier ice and that of Midship Glacier. So named by a 1989-90 New Zealand Antarctic Research Program (NZARP) field party from association with Flotsam Moraines and because all supraglacial moraines are "floating" on the glacier ice, and drift similar to flotsam and jetsam.
