Narrative

Featureless undulating snow plateau in central Antarctic Peninsula bounded by Cole Glacier and Clarke Glacier on the north and west, by Weyerhaeuser Glacier on the east, by Airy Glacier on the south, and Hariot Glacier on the southwest. The area was photographed from the air in Sept. 1962 by the BAS air unit. The photos were used for compiling a map by Ivor P. Morgan, BAS surveyor, 1961-64, for whom the upland is named.
