Description (see definition): An ice piedmont at the terminus of Kohler Glacier, E of Jenkins Heights, on the Walgreen Coast, Marie Byrd Land. Mapped by U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from U.S. Navy (USN) aerial photographs taken 1965-67. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) after U.S. Naval Ship (USNS) Maumee, a supply tanker that serviced McMurdo Station from 1970-85. Upon construction of fuel storage tanks at McMurdo Station, completed in 1970, Maumee replaced smaller tankers used earlier, delivering in one voyage a year's supply of petroleum fuels.
