Description:
The Brunt Ice Shelf borders the Antarctic coast of Coats Land between Dawson-Lambton Glacier and Stancomb-Wills Glacier Tongue. It was the location of the base of the Royal Society Expedition, 1955-59 which was taken over as the British Halley Research Station.

Named by UK-APC after David Brunt, English meteorologist, Physical Secretary of the Royal Society, 1948-57, who was responsible for the initiation of the Royal Society Expedition to this ice shelf in 1955.

The Brunt Basin () is a glacially eroded basin of the Brunt Ice Shelf and partially of the Stancomb-Willis Glacier.

The Brunt Icefalls () extend along Caird Coast for about 80 km (50 mi), where the steep ice-covered coast descends to Brunt Ice Shelf. The icefalls were discovered November 5, 1967, in the course of a USN Squadron VXE-6 flight over the coast in LC-130 aircraft, and was plotted by United States Geological Survey from air photos obtained at that time. Named by US-ACAN in association with the Brunt Ice Shelf.
