The island was named in 1902 by the NAE, 1901-04, because of the black volcanic rocks on it. Not Schwarze Inseln (German) or Svart Oya (Norwegian).
A wedge-shaped island about 13 miles long and wide, projecting through the ice shelf between Brown and White Islands to a height of 1109 m. It forms a contrast to White Island, wich is almost hidden by snow, because it is almost entirely snow-free due to its being sheltered from the prevailing wind by Minna Bluff. Its chief characteristic is the large extent of low land surroudnign the group of old craters which form the highest point.
