Saline and seasonally frozen pond in a closed catchment basin in the North Fork of Wright Valley, north of the Dais. The largest and most permanent of five such features in the basin. Feature depicted on: NZ AntTopo50-ME08
Use of the name dates back to 1966 and appears to be applied in juxtaposition to Don Juan Pond. The name was used in various reports on the locality published in the 1970's and 1980's including those by Keros Cartwright and Henry Harris, Illinois State Geological Survey, who studied the hydrogeology of this area in three field seasons, 1973-76, and by Japanese scientists such as Tetsuya Torii, working with the US and NZ Antarctic programmes between 1963-1994.
