Narrative

A relatively level ice-covered terrace rising to 2000m with an area of about 3km square between Mount Gunn and Mount Basurto in south-west Convoy Range, Victoria Land. Ice from the terrace drains westward into Cambridge 2d and also eastward in the short Scudding 2d toward Battleship Promontory. Topographic map: Cambridge 2d (1:50,000). Named by US-ACAN (2007) after Randy (Crunch) Noring who served 16 summer seasons and two winters in Antarctica between 1991 and 2007 at the South Pole and McMurdo Stations, working in operations, heavy equipment and fuels, and since 1999 as the Camp Manager at Marble Point Victoria Land
