The Gauss Peninsula is located between the Muskox Fjord (Moskusokse Fjord) and Kaiser Franz Joseph Fjord with the Nordfjord at its western end and the Foster Bay of the Greenland Sea shore on its southeastern side.
The second German North Polar Expedition 1869–70 originally gave the name Cap Gauss to a point on the south side of this peninsula, but A.G. Nathorst’s 1899 expedition was unable to determine the position because of the rounding of the coast and applied the name Gauss Halfö to the peninsula as a whole. It is named after German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss.
