Names that other countries have for this feature:
A major interior plateau of Graham Land, with heights between 1,500 and 1,800 m. Its NE limit is marked by the S wall of Russell West Glacier, from which it extends some 90 mi in a general SW direction to Herbert Plateau. The plateau was observed from the air by Sir Hubert Wilkins on a flight of Dec. 20, 1928. Wilkins named it Detroit Aviation Society Plateau after the society which aided in the organizing of his expedition but the shortened form of the original name is approved. The N and E sides of the plateau were charted by the FIDS in 1946-47.
