Description (see definition): An ice tongue forming the W limit of Hovde Cove in the SE part of Prydz Bay. The tongue is nourished by local drainage from Ingrid Christensen Coast and extends for 3 mi into the bay. Plotted by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition (1936-37) and named Flatnes (flat point). The generic ice tongue has been approved for this feature on the basis of John H. Roscoe's 1952 study of features in the area as identified in air photos taken by U.S. Navy (USN) Operation Highjump (1946-47).
