East Ongul Island
Location in Antarctica
|Administered under the Antarctic Treaty System|
East Ongul Island is an island off of Antarctica, 2 kilometres (1 nmi) long, lying immediately east of the northern part of Ongul Island at the east side of the entrance of Lutzow-Holm Bay. This island was originally mapped as a part of Ongul Island by Norwegian cartographers who worked from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936–37. A strait separating this island from Ongul Island was discovered in 1957 by the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition. They named this small island for its position with relation to Ongul Island.
