Foreword

This gazetteer contains names approved by the United States Board on Geographic Names and the Secretary of the Interior for features in Antarctica and the area extending northward to the Antarctic Convergence. Included in this geographic area, the Antarctic region, are the off-lying South Shetland Islands, the South Orkney Islands, the South Sandwich Islands, South Georgia, Bouvet0ya, Heard Island, and the Balleny Islands. These names have been approved for use by U.S. Government agencies. Their use by the Antarctic specialist and the public is highly recommended for the sake of accuracy and uniformity. Research for this publication, which supersedes previous Board gazetteers or lists for the area, was completed in June 1979. Name coverage Nearly all names for which adequate information was available have been included in the gazetteer. The basic name coverage corresponds to that of maps at the scale of 1:250,000 or larger for coastal Antarctica, the offlying islands, and isolated mountains and ranges of the continent. Much of the interior of Antarctica is a fea-

tureless ice plateau. That area has been mapped at a smaller scale and is nearly devoid of toponyms. All of the names are for mountains, glaciers, peninsulas, capes, bays, islands, subglacial entities or other natural features. Scientific stations are not listed but they are referred to in the texts of some decisions. For the names of submarine features, reference should be made to Undersea Features, U.S. Board on Geographic Names (in press, 1980). Approved names and variant names Entries include approximately 12,000 approved names in boldface type and 3,000 unapproved variant names in italics. The variant names are cross-referenced to the approved names by the word "see. " The variant names are forms the Board does not recommend for use. These forms include not only misspellings but also linguistically correct names, such as "Hval Bukta" for Bay of Whales, and names incorrectly applied. As a rule, crossreferences are not included for forms that differ only in a foreign generic term, e.g., "Beardmore Gletscher" for Beardmore Glacier, or for forms that differ from the

decision only in capitalization, spacing, hyphenation, diacritical marks, or a plural generic. Only the entries in boldface are approved for use. Alphabetization of names The names are arranged alphabetically with the specific part first; thus Mount Siple is listed as Siple, Mount. The names are alphabetized letter-by-letter throughout the name to the first comma, disregarding spaces, hyphens, diacritical marks, and periods (the latter in names with abbreviations which cannot or should not be expanded). Example: Sails, Bay of Saint Johns Range Siple, Mount Siple Coast Siple Island Snow Peak Snowplume Peak S0r Rondane Mountains Start, The: see Start Point Start Point

St. Louis, Mount Strom Glacier Swan, Mount Swan Glacier: see Swann Glacier Swann Glacier Swan Point Diacritical marlis Diacritical marks in certain Antarctic names reflect the multinational origin of the nomenclature. They include the acute accent (' ), the grave accent C ), the dieresis ( " ), and the circumflex accent ( " ), all of which are over vowels. Others are the cedilla ( , ) under the letter c, the bolle ( ° ) over the letter a, the tilde ( " ) over the letter n, the slash o (0), and the apostrophe ( ') indicating contraction in names of French origin and representing the soft sign ( b ) in transliterations of Russian names. The diacritical marks should be used with both upper and lower case. The special letter "as", which occurs in Norwegian names, has been rendered as "ae" in this gazetteer.

Arrangement of the decision entry The approved name and its geographic coordinates are placed on the first line in boldface. These items are followed by a description of the feature and, if known, facts concerning the discovery, mapping, and naming of the feature, the meaning of the toponym or identification of the honoree, the bestower of the name, and the basis for naming. Additional information is included for some names. To conserve space, abbreviations and acronyms are used in the texts (see Abbreviations, pages xx-xxii). Locational information The geographic coordinates, with longitude based on Greenwich, are generally given to the nearest minute and are for finding purposes only. The coordinates locate the summits of peaks and hills, the extremities of capes and points, the mouths or lower ends of glaciers and meltwater streams, and the centers or midpoints of other features. Distances are in nautical miles. Heights are in meters above sea level and generally are rounded to the nearest 5 meters. Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names is the body responsible for conducting research on Antarctic names. As a committee advisory to the Board, it meets

as required and recommends names for Board approval. Names approved by the Board must be endorsed by the Secretary of the Interior before they are listed as official names. From inception, the Committee has remained a small working group, rarely exceeding three or four persons at any time. The members are chosen on the basis of their special knowledge and include a cross section of academic and field expertise related to Antarctic investigations. Formal appointment to the Committee is by the Secretary of the Interior. Members of the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names, 1947 to the present, and the earlier Special Committee on Antarctic Names, 1943-47, are listed below. The members are listed in the order of their appointment. Asterisks identify those who chaired. * W. L. G. Joerg, 1943-52 * Harold E. Saunders, 1943-61 Lawrence Martin, 1943-46 * Kenneth J. Bertrand, 1946-72 Herman R. Friis, 1957-73 Paul A. Siple, 1958-62 * Albert P. Crary, 1961-76 * Henry M. Dater, 1962-74 Morton J. Rubin, 1973-74 Kelsey B. Goodman, 1973-76 * Walter R.

Jerome R. Pilon, 1976-78 William R. MacDonald, 1976-78 Peter F. Bermel, 1979Luther W. Wheat, 1979Providing overall management direction to Antarctic names work from 1943 to 1973 was Meredith F. Burrill. As Executive Secretary of the Board, Dr. Burrill worked closely with the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names. In addition to executive guidance. Dr. Burrill took special interest in Antarctic nomenclature and helped develop useful principles and policies for naming Antarctic features. Richard R. Randall, who became Executive Secretary in 1973, also has participated in affairs of the Committee. Fred G. Alberts, a senior geographer in the Geographic Names Data Base Division, Defense Mapping Agency Hydrographic/Topographic Center, served as Secretary of the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names from 1949 to 1980 with concurrent responsibility for carrying out the names research. He directed the collection and analysis of names data from historical and contemporary sources, the preparation of case briefs

wherein the toponymic usage for each feature was recorded, and the presentation of the assembled information to the Committee for determination of the' name. From these data (name evidence, map representation of the feature, aerial photographs, historical narratives, geographic descriptions, etc.), Mr. Alberts prepared the texts of the name decisions presented in this volume. He was assisted for varying intervals by the following staff geographers listed in sequential order: Gardner D. Blodgett, Virginia S. Taylor, Gordon D. Ashley, and currently Thomas J. Strenger.

Acknowledgments The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names staff has benefitted from the close cooperation of the U.S. Geological Survey, particularly the Antarctic mapping specialists who permitted early use of their cartographic products and ready access to unmatched Antarctic aerial photographic files. Leaders of the U.S. Antarctic Program have commended to the Committee the names of Antarctic personnel whose contributions have been meritorious. Thanks are extended to the several university field parties whose businesslike submission of Antarctic name proposals facilitated Committee work and assured use of fully approved names in ensuing maps and reports. The American Geographical Society has been of considerable assistance in promoting uniform nomenclature through use of Board-approved names in the l:5,000,000-scale map, Antarctica (1970), and the Antarctic Map Folio Series (1964-75). Corresponding as-

sistance was given by the American Geophysical Union in pubhshing more than 30 volumes of the Antarctic Research Series (1964- ). Special acknowledgment is made of the cooperation of Antarctic name committees in other countries. Worthy of note is the free exchange of information and views which the Advisory Committee enjoys with committees in Australia, France, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom. The committees frequently are a unique source of information concerning the discovery and naming of features. Their informal cooperation, conducted primarily through correspondence, has contrib-

uted to agreement on specific names, terminology, and policies bearing on the approval of names. Their assistance has been invaluable in resolving difficult nomenclature problems and reducing the number of conflicting names. Finally, this volume has been completed with the financial support of the National Science Foundation,

which funded the work of the Committee's staff under interagency contract CA-14. The Foundation has provided additional funds for the recording of Antarctic names in computer format and for the publication of this volume.

The Antarctic Geographic Name Problem

The nature of the problem The geographic nomenclature of Antarctica was long in need of an overall systematic treatment, objective in approach and based upon thorough examination of all of the evidence. The results of such treatment over a period of about three years were first presented in The Geographical Names of Antarctica , Special Publication No. 86 of the Board on Geographic Names, in May 1947. The continuing program since that publication has resulted in the issuance of several Board gazetteers which have now covered most of the geographic naming in Antarctica. As research has filled in many of the previous gaps in knowledge, a number of names have been modified and minor amendments have been made in the policies. This new publication brings together the greatly enlarged body of names officially standarized for use by the United States Government, together with new pertinent background information. The Antarctic continent presents many nomenclature problems. Modem specialized tools were not available to the early explorers primarily responsible for initial activity in Antarctic naming, and the nature of Antarctica put great obstacles in their way: Prior to the advent of modem aerial photography and satellite imagery, the great size of the continent and its relative inaccessibility made it difficult to develop accurate concepts of the whole and the relationship of its parts. Many of the natural features in Antarctica are markedly similar in appearance and, conversely, the appearance of a given feature varies with the angle of view or from time to time. It has not been easy for explorers to describe and locate features unmistakably or to identify a feature reported previously by someone else. The extraordinary hazards

of travel and frequent poor visibility have restricted observation. Practically all of the interior and much of the coast are masked with a cover of snow and- ice through which protrude only the upper parts of mountains or mountain ranges. Although many glaciers are perfectly distinct, except perhaps at their sources, the relationship of ice masses to one another is commonly not obvious. Another contributing difficulty in identification of features has been that the available records of exploration

do not always permit exact fixing of positions at present. Chronometer errors in the early days of Antarctic exploration resulted sometimes in considerable errors in reported longitude; looming and mirages may have caused wide errors in latitude; flight positions were not always determined with the precision necessary to permit fiill and accurate use of aerial photographs; and many features were named upon being viewed either from such a great distance or from such an angle that their relation to the local topographic detail could not be seen. Superimposition of names on previously named features in Antarctica has been the result of mistaken identity or location of features arising from the foregoing causes, of simultaneous exploration, or of lack of knowledge of previous naming. The records of early sealers and some other visitors to Antarctica have contributed little to the literature on Antarctic nomenclature. Explorers and cartographers of many nations and languages have contributed to the nomenclature of Antarctica, often without recording for posterity an explanation of their naming actions and often without full appreciation of everything that has preceded. In some instances the preceding events could not possibly have been known

vn

by explorers, since priority of occurrence was a matter only of weeks or even days. Superimposition of names has also resulted from intentional renaming of features to support, or on the basis of, Antarctic territorial claims. The kinds of nomenclature problems encountered in Antarctica fall largely in these classes: determination of the facts, circumstances, and, insofar as possible, intent of original and any subsequent naming; the choice between multiple names for a feature; the choice between alternative generic terms such as land or coast; the correction of generic terms for features whose nature was not accurately known at the time of naming, such as a peninsula which turns out to be an island; identification and fixing of location; definitive description; and determination of the appropriateness of names for application to specific features.

Resolution of the problem The need for a systematic overall treatment of Antarctic names was brought to the attention of the United States Board on Geographic Names by the requirements of the United States Antarctic Service expedition (193941) and by the comcomitant preparation in the U.S. Navy Hydrographic Office of a volume of Sailing Directions for Antarctica (1943) and a companion chart of the continent to be used for reference in conjunction with

the volume. The Sailing Directions and Chart No. 2562 were prepared under the direction of Commander Robert A. J. English, USN, who was Executive Secretary of the United States Antarctic Interdepartmental Executive Comittee. Commander English discussed informally many problems of nomenclature with Lawrence Martin of the Library of Congress and W. L. G. Joerg of the National Archives, both of whom had concerned themselves for some time with Antarctic nomenclature. There was also available to Commander English such general information on policy and background as the Board had developed up to that time, but the Board had never developed a definite and comprehensive statement of policy specifically pointed to the problem of Antarctic names. In preparing the Sailing Directions and chart, it became evident that the resolving of name conflicts which had arisen over many years and the examination of new names proposed by the Antarctic Service expedition would entail considerable specialized research. Many of the names were referred to the Board on Geographic Names for its consideration. However, owing to the volume of the names and the complexities involved, the Sailing Directions and chart were published before all of the names could be reviewed. To focus on these

names and the general question of Antarctic nomenclature, the Board appointed a Special Committee on Antarctic Names in July 1943. This committee consisted originally of W. L. G. Joerg, Chairman, Harold E. Saunders, and Lawrence Martin. After taking an active part in the initial stages of its work, Martin informally withdrew from the Committee in May 1946, and the other members continued as a committee of two. The Committee met with Meredith F. Burrill, Executive Secretary of the Board, in January 1944, made a preliminary appraisal of the situation, and considered several key names upon which it made recommendations. These recommendations were approved by the Board and the names promulgated. In Antarctica, as elsewhere, it is necessary to examine the whole of the nomenclature before the relation of any one name to the general pattern becomes clear, and as the tangled threads of Antarctic naming were gradually unraveled some of these decisions were appropriately revised. The Committee met at intervals during the early part of 1944 and worked out additional names, but the task progressively assumed ever increasing size until staff assistance was necessary. In order to make it possible for the Committee to make its contribution to both general and specific problems, the preparatory compilation of evidence on exploration and on specific names was assigned to Elizabeth Fielden in December 1944. She prepared a card record of individuals and ships that had

taken part in Antarctic exploration and an annotated card file of names that had been applied or proposed for features in Antarctica. Upon Fielden 's resignation in October 1945, the work was assigned to Florence Lyle. In March 1946 the Special Committee on Antarctic Names agreed to devote two or three half-days a week to expedite their part of the program. At the same time, Kenneth J. Bertrand was assigned full time to supervise the staff work on Antarctic names and to analyze the naming practices and records of the expeditions from their publications and from discussions with Antarctic explorers. After Bertrand joined the faculty of Catholic University of America in September 1946, he continued his investigations into Antarctic nomenclature and discovery as part of his University research program. As the work advanced it became apparent that the formulation of a statement of guiding policy was a prerequisite to an objective approach not only to overall problems of nomenclature but also to specific problems of individual names. The need for a statement of principles and policies was urgent, particularly with reference to the names of living persons. It has long been the Board's policy, in making decisions on domestic geographic names, not to use the names of living persons, but the application of this policy to Antarctica appeared neither desirable nor possible. However, in the absence

vni

of specific positive policy to the contrary, this question had been one of the most serious obstacles to the resolution of the problem of Antarctic place names. A statement of policy for Antarctic names was drafted by Meredith F. Burrill and Kenneth J. Bertrand and reviewed by the Special Committee in the spring of 1946. After discussion with several Antarctic explorers and with Commander English, it was further refined. The resulting policy statement was approved in July 1946 and was promulgated by the Board on Geographic Names in The Geographical Names of Antarctica , Special Publication No. 86, 1947, which included several hundred place names that had been decided by then. Since that time the policy has been tested through application to the choice of names in many controversial cases considered but has been modified only in detail. In Special Publication No. 86, a small group of nonpersonal Scandinavian and German names was translated into English forms. Experience proved that confusion resulted when comparing charts carrying these revised forms with charts carrying the original foreign names. Also, correlation of the English and foreign names in gazetteers was hindered by the fact that their alphabetical

listings were far removed from one another. The statement of policy was therefore amended. The section on translation and treatment of the generic term in nonpersonal foreign names has been revised to provide for retention of the specific term in most cases as originally given; retention of the original name if it is well established in international usage; substitution of an English generic for an included foreign generic, or generic plus definite article that is not readily understood (e.g., Rund Bay and Trilling Peaks for "Rundvika" and "Trillingnutane"); addition of an English generic to the foreign name so that the Anglicized form will agree basically with the original name, (e.g., Tvistein Pillars and Vorposten Peak for "Tvistein" and "Vorposten"); acceptance, in rare instances, of well established translated forms (e.g.. Cape Well-met, which had become established for the feature originally named "Motesudden"). Questions of political sovereignty have not entered into the consideration of the name policy or of individual Antarctic names. Inasmuch as the State Department has announced that the United States recognizes no territorial claims in Antarctica, the Board on Geographic Names is in a position to consider each name on its merits in relation to the unfolding knowledge of Antarctica. Therefore, the decisions contained herein have no political implication. The names of "lands" and "coasts" have been considered as applying to physical entities without political connotation and have been described and delimited as such as far as present knowledge of them permits.

The definitive descriptions of the decisions on Antarctic names include reference to the actual naming and the attendant circumstances when known, to clarify as far as practicable the basis for approval. When the record is not explicit on the facts of naming but the attendant circumstances and association of names indicate a strong presumption as to the identity of the person for whom a name was applied, the feature has been described as ' 'probably named for [such person] . ' ' The approval of surnames only, instead of full names, involved the question of naming for male and female relatives and friends solely on the basis of relationship or friendship because custom and tradition forbade commemoration of the explorers themselves. It was decided that an orderly, just and appropriate geographic nomenclature for Antarctica would be achieved best by naming for persons who qualify under the policy. An act of Congress in July 1947 abolished the former Board and created the present one, responsible conjointly with the Secretary of the Interior for standardization of geographic names. Joerg and Saunders were appointed members of a new Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names that continued without break the

work of the former Special Committee. Bertrand was appointed a member of the Committee in October 1947 and, with Board Executive Secretary Meredith F. Burrill, rounded out an effective team. Meeting regularly one-half day or more each week for several years, and irregularly after that, this group worked over a great quantity of data in considering names known to have been applied to, or proposed for, features in Antarctica. Their knowledge, understanding, and judgment in recommending impartial solutions to many difficult nomenclature questions established a level of excellence which was continued by Herman R. Friis, Paul A. Siple, Albert P. Crary, and Henry M. Dater, appointed to the Committee at the outset or just following the International Geophysical Year, 1957-58, and subsequently by Morton J. Rubin, Kelsey B. Goodman, Walter R. Seelig, Alison Wilson, Jerome R. Pilon, William R. MacDonald, Peter F. Bermel, and Luther W. Wheat, appointed during the 1970's. Fred G. Alberts had succeeded Bertrand in charge of staff research on Antarctic names in 1949, and he continued to fulfill that responsibility in association with the Committee through the completion of this publication. The Office of Naval Research in 1949, recognizing the value of an orderly Antarctic nomenclature and the start that had been made in Special Publication No. 86, contracted for continuation of the names study as part of its program of support of basic research. A second contract was made by the Office of Naval Research in 1952 to prepare a chart of the coast between longitudes

98°E. and 160°E. (subsequently amended to 86°E. and 144°E.) using aerial photographs obtained by U.S. Navy Operation Highjump, 1946-47, and U.S. Navy Operation Windmill, 1947-48. This area, including the coast of Wilkes Land, presented a series of name problems that could not be solved until the coastline was delineated. This project was brought to virtual completion by the Advisory Committee and staff in early 1955, in time for the new information to be incorporated in maps and charts, and used in planning for United States participation in the International Geophysical Year, 1957-58. The names research from the onset of the International Geophysical Year to the present has been supported by a grant from the Division of Polar Programs, National Science Foundation. Antarctic names approved by the Board have been promulgated in the following publications: The Geographical Names of Antarctica , Special Publication No. 86, U.S. Board on Geographical Names, 1947; also First Supplement, 1949; Second Supplement, 1951 (totaling 1,400 name decisions).

This gazetteer, 1980 (A cumulative list of 12,000 Antarctic name decisions of the Board). The geographic names presented here are offered as a further, and substantial, step in the Board's original objective of bringing order to the geographic nomenclature of Antarctica. Great care has been taken to focus on each feature all the historical and geographical information that might bear on the choice of the specific name and generic term. Selection of the generic term was often facilitated by reference to aerial photography which was obtained primarily by U.S. Navy Squadron VXE-6. The naming process in the developing Antarctic region cannot be considered complete, and additional data probably will suggest modification of some of these names. All parties should be objective in considering such changes, particularly where the terminology may be inappropriate or misleading. Even so, the vast majority of Antarctic names are now appropriately established, and the needs of the scientists and the general user can be served best by a stable nomenclature. The preparation of larger-scale maps and charts will periodically require the approval of additional names.

Policy Covering Antarctic Names

The following statement of policy guides the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names and the Board on Geographic Names in deciding individual cases. It should be helpful also to those persons proposing names for natural features in Antarctica. The problem of geographic nomenclature in Antarctica differs from that of any land area of comparable size. Antarctica has no permanent settlements. Even in the stations continuously occupied for a number of years

the personnel are rotated. The continent has been visited and explored by the representatives of many nations, who, by their heroic efforts to broaden man's knowledge of this land of ice and snow, have fully demonstrated the international nature of the world of science. By 1980, most major features of Antarctica have been discovered

and mapped, but a vast number of secondary features continue to be only partially delineated and remain unnamed. Under the policy here set forth, decisions on Antarctic names are based on priority of application, appropriateness, and the extent to which usage has become established. The nationality of the honoree is not a factor in the consideration of personal names. The grouping of natural features into three orders of magnitude, with corresponding categories of persons according to the type of contribution which they have made, is intended to provide the greatest possible objectivity in determining the appropriateness of a name. Because Antarctica has no history of permanent settlement, and because the continent has been unveiled

through the efforts of explorers, scientists, and others, the Board has found it practical to apply the names of such persons to Antarctic natural features. The requirements for naming features, coupled with the availability of names of deserving people, further justify this practice. It does not, however, preclude the use of other than personal names. Nonpersonal names are discussed below. The names of Antarctic buildings, facilities, stations and other installations, not being natural features, do not fall within the purview of the Board. Such names, though not included as main entries in the decision list, are significant in the overall nomenclature and do occur frequently in the text of decisions. Types of natural features The kinds of features that have been named in Antarctica are roughly grouped in three categories. There is considerable latitude for judgment in classifying individual features, since it is practically impossible to set size limits for "large glaciers," "great mountains," or "large bays." Features having special significance or prominence in geographic discovery, scientific investigation, or the history of Antarctica may be placed in the next higher category than their size would warrant. 1 . First-order features

a. Regions or "lands" b. Coasts c. Seas d. Plateaus e. Extensive mountain ranges f . Major subglacial basins, mountains, or plateaus g. Ice shelves h. Large glaciers 2. Second-order features a. Peninsulas b. Mountain ranges, except the most extensive c. Great or prominent mountains d. Glaciers, except the largest e. Prominent capes f . Islands or ice rises g. Gulfs h. Large bays i . Straits or passages j . Harbors k. Extensive reefs, shoals, or banks 3 . Third-order features a. Minor mountains and hills b. Nunataks c. Cliffs

d. Rocks e. Minor shore features f. Points g. Capes (except the greater or more promi-

nent ones) h. Glaciers (except the greater or more prominent ones) i . Bays (except the greater or more prominent ones) j . Coves k. Anchorages 1 . Parts of these features m. Reefs, shoals, and banks of small extent Application of personal names to features Personal names generally are applied to natural features as outlined here: 1 . First-order features a. Leaders or organizers of expeditions to Antarctica b. Persons who have made discoveries of outstanding significance in Antarctica, or leaders of parties or captains of ships that have made such discoveries c. Persons who, through their work with Antarctic expeditions, have made outstanding contributions to scientific knowledge or to the techniques of Antarctic exploration d. Persons who have provided the major financial or material support to an expedition, thereby making such an undertaking possible 2. Second-order features a. Persons whose outstanding heroism, skill, spirit, or labor has made a signal contribution to the success of an expedition b. Persons who have made important contributions in the planning, organization, outfitting, or operation of expeditions to Antarctica c. Ship captains or leaders of field parties of such expeditions d. Persons whose contributions to the knowledge of the Arctic either have advanced our knowledge of Antarctica or have expanded the possibilities of Antarctic exploration

e. Persons who have made outstanding contributions to equipment for polar exploration f . The directors or heads of learned societies that have given significant support or made material contributions to Antarctic exploration

XI

g. Persons who by substantial contributions of funds or supplies have made possible an Antarctic expedition h. Persons who have done outstanding work in the utilization of data, identification of specimens, or interpretation of the results of Antarctic exploration 3 . Third-order features a. Persons who have assisted in the work of organizing or conducting Antarctic exploration, or who have assisted in analysis of information gathered in the course of such exploration b. Members of expeditions, including shipbased personnel c. Persons whose contributions to knowledge in their respective fields have facilitated the discovery, recognition, identification, or recording of Antarctic phenomena d. Teachers or administrators in institutions of higher learning who have contributed to the training of polar explorers e. Persons who have made material contributions in any form to Antarctic expeditions, and who have by their words or actions demonstrated an interest in further scientific research rather than in seeking commercial exploitation of such contributions Application of nonpersonal names Names in the following categories may be applied to a feature in any order of magnitude with which there is association. Examples of nonpersonal names are; 1. Names that commemorate events (e.g., Charcot's Deliverance Point and Nordenskjold's Hope Bay)

2. Names of ships from which discoveries have been made (e.g.. Cape Gronland and Cape Norvegia) 3. Naines of organizations that have sponsored, supported, or given scientific or financial assistance to Antarctic expeditions (e.g., Royal Society Range, Admiralty Mountains, Banzare Coast) or names of institutions of higher learning that have contributed to the training of polar explorers 4. Names peculiarly descriptive of the feature (e.g.. Deception Island, Mount Tricom, or Three Slice Nunatak); descriptive names not unique or particularly appropriate and for which there are likely to be duplicates are undesirable 5. Any other nonpersonal name that because of its

acknowledged importance occupies a major role in Antarctic exploration or history (e.g., Mount Glossopteris) Criteria of appropriateness 1. Newly proposed names will be considered for first, second, or third order features in the light of their appropriateness, as evidenced by the following factors arranged in order of weight: a. Chronological priority of discovery, naming, or other relevant action b. Actual association of the person, ship, or organization, event, etc., with the feature c. Association of the person, ship, organization, event, etc. , with other polar exploration d. Contribution of the person to the knowledge of Antarctica e. Association of the person, ship, organization, event, etc., with other polar exploration f . Contribution of the person to relevant fields of knowledge g. Extent to which financial or material contributions have contributed to the success of an expedition or to the collection of valuable scientific data h. Previous recognition through a geographic name in Antarctica

(1) It is advisable in future naming in Antarctica to apply the name of one person to only one feature. (2) To avoid confusion, the names of persons having the same surname should be applied to no more than one feature of a kind. i. The possibility of ambiguity or confusion with names already in use. (1) The duplication of names in use is undesirable (2) Since descriptive names are often ambiguous and easily duplicated, they should be avoided, unless a descriptive name is peculiarly appropriate (3) the duplication in Antarctica of names well known in other parts of the world is undesirable even though qualified by adjectives such as "new," "south," and "little" 2. Names already in use will be considered in the light of: a. Appropriateness, as outlined above b. Wideness of acceptance, as evidenced by extended use on maps and in literature. Usage considered sufficiently fixed and/or unanimous may be accepted as valid grounds for

)

approval of a name that otherwise would not qualify. Fields of knowledge pertinent to Antarctica The following is a list of fields of knowledge in which outstanding contributions may be considered justification for commemoration in an Antarctic place name. It is to be considered neither exclusive nor exhaustive, and no order of priority is intended. 1 . Navigation and astronomy 2. Oceanography and hydrography 3. Surveying, photogrammetry, and cartography 4. Meteorology and climatology

5. Geodesy and geophysics 6. Glaciology and ice physics 7. Radio, radar, and allied fields 8. Geology, volcanology, and seismology 9. Geography 10. Botany and its subdivisions 1 1 . Zoology and its subdivisions Recommended language and form In keeping with long-established policies based upon trends in the normal evolution of geographic names, considerations will be given to brevity, simplicity, and unambiguity in selecting the form of names derived by these procedures: 1. The application of full names and/or titles of persons is not considered appropriate. Titles will be translated where their use is required. 2. The names of organizations, ships, and other nonpersonal names, when unduly long and cumbersome, will ordinarily be used in some shortened though intelligible form.

3. English generics are preferred. Complete translation of names will generally be avoided, but well established translated forms may be accepted. 4. An English generic may be added, or may be substitued for an included generic term, in the case of nonpersonal, non-English, single-word names that include a generic or a definite article , or both. 5. Board-approved romanization systems are used for transliteration from nonroman alphabets. Inappropriate names Names in the following categories will not be considered, unless otherwise appropriate according to the principles stated herein, or unless such names are widely and firmly established as of the date of approval of these principles . 1 . Names suggested because of relationship or friendship. 2. Names of contributors of funds, equipment, and

supplies, who by the nature and tone of their advertising have endeavored to capitalize or to gain some commercial advantage as a result of their donations. This would not include advantages resulting from testing of donated equipment under Antarctic conditions; in cases of doubt, the decision shall be in favor of the individual whose name has been proposed. 3. The names of products, sled dogs, or pets will ordinarily not be considered appropriate for application to natural features.

Application of Policy in Decisions

In applying the principles outlined in the preceding pages, the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names has attempted to disturb previous naming as little as possible while recognizing the most appropriate associations of names and features. In general, established names have been retained. Even when this resulted in two similar names for features in the same category, as two mountains or two bays, the names have been kept if particularly appropriate or without alternatives. To avoid confusion, however, the Committee has altered one of a pair

of identical names when the features are close to each other. Verification of old names In the initial years of study culminating in The Geographical Names of Antarctica , Special Publication No. 86 (1947), the Committee was concerned with sorting out the names already bestowed and did httle original naming. In some instances, after deciding between conflicting names for the same feature, the Committee ap-

plied the rejected name to another feature for which it was appropriate. For example, after rejecting the name "Bjerk0 Head" in favor of Cape Damley, the peninsula bordering the cape was named Bjerk0 Peninsula. Some new names were supplied for prominent features to which reference was necessary for purposes of the Committee's study, such as Bingham Glacier and Trail Inlet. Other new names were applied to commemorate members of expeditions or those who played a prominent part in furthering Antarctic expeditions or exploration, but whose names by some chance had not been selected for application to Antarctic features. These early instances of naming by the Committee, however, were few compared to the number of names considered.

In a number of cases it has not been possible, with data collected from all available sources, to find or to identify features previously discovered and named by Antarctic explorers. In most cases these are either minor features or are not required for general reference. Where the data at hand have been insufficient to identify features discovered by earlier explorers, and if explorers have been unable to find features previously reported, the Committee has generally deferred any recommendation to assign or to fix the specific or generic parts of names, the positions, or the types of features. Cases in point are Fave Island and Prensa Islands , in the northern portion of the Graham Coast. Neither Fave Island, which apparently lies somewhere among many small, ice-capped islands in the western portion of the Wilhelm Archipelago, nor Prensa Islands, in the northem portion of the archipelago, can be located with certainty on the rather definitive maps now available. Names should be assigned as originally intended if that becomes possible. If not, some of the names might be assigned to features which will serve as distinctive landmarks to future explorers and travelers approaching this area. Such names have therefore been placed on file for future consideration after further definitive exploration. The first appreciable number of new names applied by the Committee was to features in the coastal area of Wilkes Land in 1955. The Committee and its staff had prepared five reconnaissance maps of the coast between 86°E. and 144°E. from aerial photography obtained by U.S. Navy Operation Highjump, 1946-47, and names were needed for a few hundred features that were first delineated on the new maps. The names applied by the Committee commemorate members of the Wilkes expedition, 1838-42, which discovered portions of the coast, and Operation Highjump personnel. Other names were drawn from U.S. Navy Operation Windmill, 194748, which obtained astronomical control data for the area, and from foreign expeditions.

In the years following the International Geophysical Year, 1957-58, the United States began a systematic mapping program in Antarctica, and the Advisory Committee was obliged for the first time to originate names in large numbers to meet the needs of sustained map production by the U.S. Geological Survey. The names, selected according to policy, were primarily those of research and support personnel who had contributed to the success of the U.S. Antarctic Research Program. "Land" or "coast" For hundreds of years the terms "land" and "coast" have been applied unsystematically in Antarctica. The definitions developed by the Committee in 1947 are set

forth here. As applied in the decisions on Antarctic names, the term "land" refers to a major physical (geographical) subdivision of the continent. It implies a concept of area, as opposed to linear extent, gained either through observation over a great extent or through recognition of areal unity. A "land" may include "coasts" that may be differentiated and separately named on its seaward margin, and it may include fairly extensive features such as peninsulas or plateaus. The term "coast" refers to a zone or strip on the seaward margin of the continent, possessing a recognized degree of unity resulting from physiographic homogeneity, from marked breaks in the configuration of the coasthne, or from the history of its exploration. A "coast" is usually of indeterminate depth. It includes the small islands immediately offshore and marine features of the transition zone. A "coast" that presents recognized physical unity has been delimited by physical features. In the delimitation of each coast due account has been taken of the history of its exploration, and when physical unity is lacking or not known a "coast" has been delimited on the basis of exploration history alone, subject to later modification when more physiographic data are available. The name Mac. Robertson Land illustrates the procedures followed. Early Board gazetteers designated the area as "Mac-Robertson Coast" because it was seen mostly from the sea and from short flights over the coast without deep penetration inland. The delimiting breaks in the shoreline at Cape Damley and William Scoresby Bay corresponded with its 1930 exploration by Mawson, but, while Mawson had used the terminology "land," almost nothing was known of the interior. The Advisory Committee amended its terminology to Mac. Robertson Land in 1966, but did so only after exploration of the hinterland, including the extensive Prince Charles Mountains, added a dimension of breadth. In analogy to Mac. Robertson Land, the Lars Christensen Coast has

XIV

been delimited to include the section of littoral discovered by Norwegians. The delimitation is somewhat more restricted than is suggested in early Norwegian charts, but it coincides with landmarks along the coast and does justice to the facts of exploration. The Committee had assumed that once a continuous series of capes and points were named around Antarctica, reference to coast names would diminish. Coast names survive, however, and continue to be useful as units for organizing nautical or other information in vol-

umes such as sailing directions. Name proposal form Attention focuses now, of course, on the existing names not covered in this publication and on new names. A great part of the labor in the approval of a new name can be eliminated if the proposal is accompanied by full information on the name, the reasons for its choice, and a definitive description of the feature. As a step in this direction a form has been prepared for proposal of new names in Antarctica. The form is reproduced on page xvi. Copies may be obtained from the U.S. Board on Geographic Names, or the form may be copied by persons wishing to propose names. The Antarctic names policy of the Board has been utilitarian and durable, remaining essentially unchanged over the years. The names approved by the Board since enunciation of the policy in 1947 have conformed with its letter and spirit, although l.b on page xii, the requirement for direct association between a feature and its name, has been relaxed somewhat. This shift is a

result of a desire to recognize persons who have worked in isolated outposts such as Byrd, Plateau, or South Pole Stations where few namable features exist. In the application of personal names the approval of surnames only, instead of full names, has been reaffirmed. Moreover, the Committee has shortened a number of toponyms it originated and which previously incljided both a given name and a surname. While upholding the general preference for surnames, the Committee has recommended the approval of a given name in unusual situations, or to avoid the application of identical toponyms. The fact that some names now entrenched in usage and others bestowed by nationals of another country cannot well be brought into the general framework of the principles set forth here need not be too disturbing. There has been general acceptance abroad of the principles underlying the policy. In summary, the following list of more than 12,000 decisions, constituting the bulk of all names known to have been applied or proposed in the Antarctic, and including all of the controversial ones, reflects a conviction that an orderly nomenclature is desirable and is largely attainable by objective application of the guiding principles. The list is the result of nearly four decades of effort and broadly reflects the history of- Antarctic exploration. The list will require maintenance, improvement, and expansion. Further information is needed on the nature and the precise location of some features already named. Continuing expeditions and research can be expected to result in additional names to be incorporated through the developed procedures for the maintenance of orderly nomenclature in Antarctica.

Antarctic Mapping and References to Map Materials

Recent mapping techniques Before the International Geophysical Year (1957-58), Antarctic map coverage consisted of a few continental maps with incomplete coastlines and almost no interior detail. Small scale aeronautical charts covering the continent included mapping from the few earlier expeditions to the interior, but the detail was sparse and sometimes of questionable accuracy. A program for Antarctic mapping was not included in the activities recommended by the Comite Special de I'Annee Geophysique Internationale. U.S. mapping operations during the 1957-58 period were limited to surveys near scientific stations, on traverses as a supple-

ment to scientific observations, or from ships near the coast. Following the International Geophysical Year, the United Stales decided to carry out a long range Antarctic research program. In support of this research, in 1960, funds, aircraft, and personnel were committed to conduct topographic mapping. Since its initiation a number of developments in sophisticated equipment and mapping techniques have become available for use in Antarctica. Antarctic ground control surveys were initially based on solar observations. These early surveys served as a

basis for better maps when coupled with aerial photography . Electronic distance measuring equipment capable of measuring 32 mile distances within 25 centimeters was first used in Antarctica during the early 1960s. Soon thereafter this equipment was used on traverses supported by gas turbine helicopters capable of landing on mountains in excess of 4,000 meters above sea level. As a result, it has been possible to establish control points more rapidly and to facilitate mapping of much larger areas. The most recent development in control activities has been the use of positioning devices capable of a high order of accuracy obtained by measuring the doppler effect of signals received from geodetic satellites. This equipment came into wide use during the 1970s and has been employed, for example, to determine within 1 meter the movement of the ice sheet at the South Pole. It has also permitted the establishment of geodetic control in Antarctica on the World Geodetic System, whereas previous surveys were on local datums. Although the development of accurate mapping control has been important to post-IGY mapping, perhaps even more important has been the systematic acquisition of high-quality aerial photographs along planned flight lines using cameras with cartographic lenses. The trimetrogon array of three cameras developed for reconnaissance mapping during World War II was used on most flights over Antarctica because the characteristics of this system require a minimum of ground control points and permit a wider spacing of flight lines. Hundreds of thousands of square miles of Antarctica were photographed by U.S. Navy airplanes especially configured to accept aerial cameras and flown along lines planned by experts from the U.S. Geological Survey. P2V Neptune airplanes, used during the early 1960s, were replaced during the latter part of the decade

with a photoconfigured LC-130 Hercules. During the 1970s, as the range and navigational accuracy of the airplanes improved and satellites provided weather information over project areas, successful photographic missions became predictable rather than occasional. Technical specifications were developed for use by U.S. Navy photographic crews, and the resultant photography was inspected immediately to assure the high quality required for accurate photogrammetric compilation of maps. More recently a precision camera in the LC-130 aircraft has been used to acquire high resolution vertical photography. The advent of earth satellites has enabled further expansion and improvement of the accuracy of Antarctic mapping. ERTS (Earth Resources Technology Satellite) imagery has identified Antarctic geographic features, and recent Landsat imagery, greatly improved, is being exploited. These data have been useful in studying coastal ice formations and glacial tongues, and are a

significant source of information for certain types of studies. Future satellites will have a variety of sensors with even better resolution. Current earth resources satellites are launched in nonpolar orbits, concentrating on the populated temperate zones of the earth, and acceptable imagery of certain interior areas of Antarctica has as yet to be acquired. The future placement of a satellite in a polar orbit would enable the interior areas of the continent to be recorded and mapped with greater accuracy. United States maps Over the last 25 years the U.S. Geological Survey has mapped over 1,450,000 square kilometers of the continent previously unmapped. Viewing of geographic features from more than one direction using aerial photographs has eliminated earlier problems associated with identification of features from the ground. Persons suggesting names for features, and those experts charged with the review and reconciliation of these proposals, now have available to them the means to define all features and the characteristics that determine the application of generic terms. Just as mapping must be more detailed to support intensive site-specific investigations, so must the application of geographic names be intensified in some areas to provide locative references for scientists publishing the results of their investigations. A recent example of new large scale mapping that will require names is the series of l:50,000-scale maps of the ice free valley area of the McMurdo Sound region. In addition to surface mapping, Antarctica's subglacial topography is being revealed as airborne radio echo sounding extends over the continent. The interpretation of echo sounding data is disclosing important features for which names are required.

The U.S. Geological Survey has focused its mapping on West Antarctica and the Transantarctic Mountains to support the requirements of the United States Antarctic Research Program. The basic scale of the reconnaissance series of maps is 1:250,000, and nearly 100 maps have been published. Other series include l:500,000-scale sketch maps, generally prepared in advance of the more detailed 1:250, 000-scale series. These maps are also the basis for air navigation charts prepared by the Defense Mapping Agency for aircraft operations, and for the 1:5, 000, 000-scale continental map prepared by the American Geographical Society.

GEOGRAPHIC NAMES OF THE ANTARCTIC

Ann Island GS^OS'S., 67°06'W. Island in the Debenham Is., lying SE. of Barbara I., off the W. coast of Graham Land. Disc, by the BGLE, 1934-37, under Rymill, and named by him for a daughter of Frank Debenham, member of the BGLE Advisory Committee. Anniversary Nunataks: see Blanabbane Nunataks 68°02'S., 63°01'E. Ann Shirley, Mount: see Shirley, Mount 75°39'S., 142°03'W. Antarctica 90°00'S. The Antarctic continent, together with the islands rising from the continental block, centering roughly on the South Pole and lying almost wholly within the Antarctic Circle. It has an area of about 5.5 million square miles. Antarctica is a relatively high and compact mass and is snow covered except for some coastal areas and the protruding peaks of mountains and mountain ranges. The first sighting of Antarctica is contested but apparently occurred in the 1820's. The term Antarctic has been applied to the southern polar

regions of Earth, and Antarctica to the continent, by analogy with the term Arctic, applied to the northern polar regions. Antdrtica, Peninsula: see Antarctic Peninsula 69°30'S., 65°00'W. Antarctic Archipelago: see Palmer Archipelago 64°15'S., 62°50'W. Antarctic Bay 54°06'S., 36°59'W. Bay 1 mi. wide which recedes SW. 4 mi., entered between Antarctic Pt. and Morse Pt. on the N. coast of South Georgia. Probably first sighted by a Br. exp. under Cook in 1775. It was explored in 1902 by members of the SwedAE, under Nordenskjold, who named it for their ship, the Antarctic. Antarctic Continent: see Antarctica 90°00'S. Antarctic Convergence A line encircling Antarctica where the cold, northward-flowing Antarctic waters sink beneath the relatively warmer waters of the sub- Antarctic. The line is actually a zone approximately 20 to 30 miles wide, varying somewhat in latitude in different longitudes, extending across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans between the 48th and 61st parallels of south latitude. The precise location at any given place and time is made evident by the sudden change in surface temperature which averages 5 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit (2.8 to 5.5 Celsius). Although this zone is a mobile

one, it usually does not stray more than half a degree of latitude from its mean position. This line, like the tree line of the north, is a natural boundary rather than one derived from reasoning. It not only separates two hydrological regions, but also separates areas of distinctive marine life associations and of different climates. The South Shetland Is., South Orkney Is., South Sandwich Is., South Georgia, Bouvetaya, Heard I. and McDonald Is. all lie south of the Antarctic Convergence. The lies Kerguelen lie approximately on the Convergence; the Falkland Is., Prince Edward Is., lies Crozet and Macquarie I. lie north of the Convergence. Antarctic Peninsula 69°30'S., 65°00'W. The major peninsula of Antarctica, extending from Prime Head in the north to a line between Cape Adams and a point on the mainland coast south of Eklund Islands. The first sighting of Antarctic Peninsula is contested but it apparently occurred in the 1820's. Agreement on this name by the US-ACAN and UKAPC in 1964 resolved a long-standing difference involving use of the American name. Palmer Peninsula,

and the British name, Graham Land, for this feature. (Graham Land is now restricted to that part of Antarctic Peninsula northward of a line between Cape Jeremy and Cape Agassiz; Palmer Land to the part southward of that line.) Antarctic Point 54°04'S., 36''58'W. Point which marks the W. side of the entrance to Antarctic Bay on the N. coast of South Georgia. Charted in the period 1926-30 by DI personnel, who named it after nearby Antarctic Bay. Antarctic Polar Front: see Antarctic Convergence (No coordinates assigned; the feature is circumpolar.) Antarctic Sound 63''20'S., 56°45'W. Body of water about 30 mi. long and from 7 to 1 2 mi. wide, separating the Joinville I. group from the NE. end of Antarctic Peninsula. The sound was named by the SwedAE under Nordenskjold for the exp. ship Antarctic which in 1902, under the command of Capt. C. A. Larsen, was the first vessel to navigate it.

GEOGRAPHIC NAMES OF THE ANTARCTIC

AnteU, Mount 54°07'S., 36"'42'W. Mountain rising above 610 m., overlooking the N. coast of South Georgia midway between Bjelland and Hercules Points. Surveyed by the SGS in the period 1951-57, and named by the UK-APC for Georg Antell, foreman of the South Georgia Whaling Co. station at nearby Leith Hbr., 1913-39. Antena Zima: see Antenna Island 69°00'S., 39°35'E. Antenna Island 69°00'S., 39°35'E. A small island lying midway between Nes0ya and East

Ongul Island, the latter the site of the scientific station of the Japanese Antarctic Research Expeditions in Liitzow-Holm Bay. Mapped from surveys and air photos by JARE, 1957. The name "Antena-jima" (Antenna Island) was given by JARE Headquarters in 1972. Antevs Glacier 67°15'S., 66°47'W. Glacier on Arrowsmith Pen., Graham Land, flowing N. between Humphreys Hill and Boyle Mtns. to Lallemand Fjord. Named by UK-APC in 1960 for Ernest V. Antevs, American glacial geologist. Ant HiU 78''47'S., 161°27'E. Hill, 1,310 m., rising steeply on the W. side of the Skelton Glacier between Ant Hill Glacier and Dilemma Glacier. Surveyed and named in 1957 by the N.Z. party of the CTAE, 1956-58. So named by geological members because of the prominent anticline in the bluflf below the hill. Ant Hill Glacier 78°49'S., 161°30'E. Glacier between Ant Hill and Bareface Bluff, rising in the Worcester Range and flowing NE. into Skelton Glacier. Surveyed and named in 1957 by the N.Z. party of the CTAE, 1956-58.
