Barker Bank (64°1′S 57°1′W / 64.017°S 57.017°W / -64.017; -57.017) is a submarine bank in the Erebus and Terror Gulf with a least depth of 20 metres (66 ft). The bank extends northeast from Ula Point, James Ross Island, but its limits are not precisely defined. It was charted from HMS Endurance, 1981–82, and named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee after Captain Nicholas J. Barker, Royal Navy, who was in command of the ship, 1980–82.
