Named for Prof. Norman Horowitz, California Institute of Technology, whose interest in the analogy of Antarctica to Mars led him to suggest the value of Victoria Land dry valley studies in regard to Martian life detection. The studies were undertaken (1966-68) by a USARP biological party led by Roy E. Cameron, who suggested the naming.
