Narrative

Prominent mountain range, c. 2,800 m, extending 35 mi NW-SE from Mount Bayonne to Care Heights and Mount Cupola, in N Alexander Island. First mapped by the FrAE, 1908-10, under J.B. Charcot and named by him after the French city of Rouen. Charcot indicated a break in these mountains S of Mount Paris, but air photos taken by the RARE, 1947-48, as interpreted by Searle of the FIDS indicate that the mountains are continuous SE to Mount Cupola; partly surveyed by FIDS in 1948; further delineated from U.S. satellite imagery of January 1974 and February 1975.
