Description (see definition): A high rocky point on the E side of James Ross Island. It lies in Markham Bay and separates the mouths of Gourdon and Hobbs Glaciers. The name "Rabot Gletscher" after the French glaciologist, Charles Rabot, was originally given by Otto Nordenskjold, leader of the Swedish Antarctic Expedition (SwedAE), 1901-04, to a small glacier close W of The Watchtower on the S side of the island. The Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) surveyed the S part of the island in 1953 and found that the glacier is very insignificant and does not require a name. In order to preserve the name Rabot in the vicinity, the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) has applied it to the point described.
