Description (see definition): Large ice piedmont which covers the NW half of Anvers Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. This feature was presumably first seen by a German expedition under Dallmann, 1873-74, and was first roughly surveyed by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE), 1903-05, and French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE), 1908-10, both under Charcot. Named by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) for James W.S. Marr, British marine biologist, who was first commander of the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS), 1943-45, and leader of the base at nearby Port Lockroy. Marr was also a member of the British Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE) under Mawson, 1929-31, and Shackleton's expedition of 1921-22.
