Narrative

highest point (c. 1000m) of Fournier Ridge, Desko Mountains, Rothschild Island, was photographed from the air by RARE in December 1947 when, because of low cloud cover, it was thought to be on Dorsey Island; later incorrectly identified as a peak on Charcot Island (Ronne, 1949, p.236); following map compilation by FIDS in 1959 from RARE air photographs, finally identified and named in reference to the problem of identification ([in 69°22'S 72°42'W] APC, 1961, p.2; BA chart 3571, 14.vii.1961; Searle, 1963, end map; [co-ordinates corrected from USLANDSAT imagery of February 1975] APC, 1977, p.12). Gora Enigma (Soviet Union. AA, 1966, Pl.24).
