Alfred Ernest Ice Shelf
This ice shelf lies between Alert Point and Cape Woods on the Wootton Peninsula. The Alfred Ernest Ice Shelf is regarded as a composite ice shelf that is composed of an inner unit of glacial origin and a trunk glacier originating from sea ice.
Some time around 1955, a section of the ice shelf broke off. It is now called the ARLIS-II ice island.
