It is 3 km long in southwest-northeast direction and 2 km wide, and bounded to the southwest by Krum Rock and upper Contell Glacier, to the southeast and east by the feet of Castillo Nunatak (437 m) and Burdick Ridge, and to the north by the lower course of Perunika Glacier. The field slopes gently northwestwards, its foot being bounded by the hills along Bulgarian Beach.
