Names that other countries have for this feature:
rising to 925m between Melville Glacier and Mapple Glacier, Oscar II Coast, was roughly surveyed by FIDS from Hope Bay in November 1947, and resurveyed in October 1955 and August 1962. The name, after Capt. Ahab of the Pequod, in association with names in this area from Herman Melville's Moby Dick or the whale, was originally applied in error to a feature between Melville Glacier and Pequod Glacier (APC, 1958, p.4; BA chart 3570, 29.ix.1961), but was later re-applied to the present feature (APC, 1964, p.2).
