Narrative

An undersea knoll (submarine volcano) 5.5 miles NW of Rosamel Island in Antarctic Sound. It rises c. 700 meters above the sea floor to c. 200 meters below sea level. First mapped by swath bathymetry during USAP cruise in N.B. Palmer, January 2007 (Eugene Domack, chief scientist; M. Terminal, ship's master). Named by US-ACUF (2007) after Jeon Jaegyu, a young scientist at King Sejong Station, King George Island, with the Korean Antarctic Program during the 2003 field season. He participated in a rescue attempt for an overturned boat in Maxwell Bay, was himself thrown into the sea by heavy seas, and succumbed to hypothermia while making his way along the shore toward Marsh Station.
