Names that other countries have for this feature:
Range of mountains which rise above 2,440 m and extend about 20 mi in a NE-SW direction along the S side of Clifford Glacier, on the E coast of Palmer Land. The mountains were discovered in 1936 by the BGLE, and they appear in aerial photographs taken by the USAS in September 1940. During 1947 they were photographed from the air by members of the RARE, who in conjunction with the FIDS charted them from the ground. The name Eland, Lady Clifford's maiden name, was given in 1952 by Sir Miles Clifford, Gov. of the Falkland Islands, at the request of members of the FIDS staff.
