Names that other countries have for this feature:
A dome-shaped volcanic mountain, 2723m high, with three slightly elevated sharp peaks, lying on the eastern side of Koettlitz Glacier, along the western edge of the Ross Ice Shelf. Feature shown on: NZ AntTopo50-MH10
Discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition (Discovery Expedition, BrNAE), 1901-04, and named for the Morning, a relief ship to the expedition. It is an entirely volcanic formation. As of the 1950s no party had been nearer to it than Heald Island on Koettlitz Glacier, from which point it appears to consist of an aggregate of a large number of large cones and centres of activity rather than material from a single vent. At the time it was considered that "as it is situated right upon, or even within, the line of fracture which has given rise to the present coastline of south Victoria Land Upon its western side, if anywhere, should be found evidence of the effect of volcanic activity upon the older rocks of the mainland and possibly some arrangements of the vents showing a relationship between them and the fault line."
