Morgan Inlet

Morgan Inlet is an ice-filled inlet about 18 nautical miles (33 km) long, with two branches, indenting the east end of Thurston Island, Antarctica, between Lofgren Peninsula and Tierney Peninsula. It was discovered in helicopter flights from the U.S. Navy Bellingshausen Sea Expedition in February 1960, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Lieutenant Commander Joseph R. Morgan, U.S. Navy, a hydrographic and oceanographic officer of U.S. Navy Task Force 43 during this expedition.
