A large snowfield lying west of the central ridge in the Churchill Mountains, bounded to the north by Elder Peak and the massif surmounted by Mount Wharton, to the south by Sosa Icefalls and the head of Starshot Glacier, and to the west by Wallabies Nunataks and All-Blacks Nunataks. Named after William H Chapman, topographic engineer, USGS, leader of the 1961-62 Topo North-Topo South survey of mountains W of Ross Sea from Cape Roget, Adare Peninsula, to Otway Massif at the head of Beardmore Glacier, a traverse totalling 1570 miles. This first helicopter-supported traverse with EDM electronic-distant-measuring instruments resulted in the establishment of ground control making possible the mapping of a 100,000-square-mile area of the Transantarctic Mountains.
