Feature type: Mountain (2a)
This name originates from New Zealand. It is part of the New Zealand Gazetteer and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.
Named for R Unwin (deceased), former Superintendent of DSIR's Geophysical Observatory, and active in Antarctic research at Scott base from 1958-59 up until retirement. A mountain located south of Sanders Nunatak, and north of Huey Gully, and north-west of Scholars Peak, and west of Ghent Ridge; these features lying along the southern flow of Commonwealth Glacier. Topographic map: ST 57-60/6 & 7 (Pt) Ross Island (1:250,000) and McMurdo Dry Valleys Satellite Image Map: Denton Glacier (1:25,000). Replaces previous New Zealand Gazette, 24 June 2004, No. 76, page 1853. First proposed as Mount Hercules, then changed to Mount Unwin when Unwin Ledge was originally assigned by the New Zealand Geographic Board as Himalaya Ledge. The United States Board on Geographic Names did not assign a name for this mountain. Mount Unwin is therefore removed to avoid duplication and confusion with the newly assigned Unwin Ledge (by NZGB in 2008).
