A small ice free rock feature at 1572m, rising on the western slope of Mount Bird, 1.7km west of the summit of Mount Bird, Ross Island, Antarctica. Feature depicted on topographic map NZ AntTopo50-ME13.
Named by the NZGB for Brian Karl, who worked in Antarctica for 30 years including continuously between 1987 and 2016 as core member of New Zealand’s Adélie penguin programme (K122). He has also worked closely in collaboration with the US Adélie penguin programme. This feature is located near the significant Adélie penguin colonies, on the western shoreline of Mount Bird. Brian Karl’s efforts have contributed data to numerous peer-reviewed Antarctic publications (nine of which he was a co-author) and media events. Over his time he supported many other personnel and events that were not part of K122 but were based at Cape Bird, including support for post-graduate students. Antarctica NZ often relied on Mr Karl’s knowledge and experience of Antarctica to support new personnel at Cape Bird.
