This coast was sketched by a British expedition 1828-31, under Foster, who named a cape in this region after Captain Henry Kater, a member of the committee which planned the expedition. This region was more fully mapped by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition (SwedAE), 1901-04, under Nordenskjold, who gave the name Cape Gunnar to this cape. The name Kater perpetuates the earlier naming.
