Arthur Island is practically completely glacierized. Only a small area (Mys Ledovoy Razvedky) in the northwestern shores of the island and another (Mys Nizkiy) in the southernmost point of the island are free of glacier ice.
This island was named by Frederick George Jackson after his brother Arthur Jackson, in the Jackson-Harmsworth Polar Expedition.
