Narrative

A cone shaped peak 2.4 mi NNE of the Matterhorn, rising to 1,850 m on the ridge separating the heads of Lacroix, Newall, and Suess Glaciers in Asgard Range, Victoria Land. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) after William Berry Lyons, American geochemist, veteran of expeditions to the Himalayas, Greenland, Iceland, and Antarctica, 1980-97; chief scientist, McMurdo Dry Valleys Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) field team, 1993-97. As a member of a University of New Hampshire field party, 1988-89, Lyons participated in glaciochemical investigations that collected two ice cores, 150 and 175 m deep, from upper Newall Glacier, in proximity of this peak.
