Narrative

A prominent 2,120 m mesa, 2.8 mi NW of Mount J.J. Thompson in Asgard Range, Victoria Land. Almost wholly ice covered, the mesa is 1.5 mi long, averages 0.5 mi wide, and rises above the converging heads of David Valley, Bartley Glacier, Matterhorn Glacier, and the N flank of Rhone Glacier, all receiving ice that drains from the feature. Named by US-ACAN (1997) after Steven T. Kottmeier, who as a USAP researcher, 1981-87, investigated sea ice microbial communities in the fast ice of McMurdo Sound, as well as krill associated with ice edge zones in Bellingshausen, Scotia and Weddell Seas. Served as the Manager, Laboratory Facilities, McMurdo Station for ITT Antarctic Services, 1988-90; Manager, Laboratory Science, 1990-96 and Chief Scientist from 1997 for Antarctic Support Associates (ASA).
