Narrative

A rugged mountain range in Victoria Land over 135km long. Up to 50km wide where it rises between Priestley Glacier and Campbell Glacier, narrowing to about 18km wide at Terra Nova Bay.

Named For

Peaks in the low and mid portions of the range were observed by early British expeditions to the Ross Sea. The range was mapped in detail by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and U.S. Navy (USN) air photos, 1955-63. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) in recognition of the splendid support to research provided by the U.S. Navy's Operation Deep Freeze expeditions to Antarctica for many years beginning in 1954.
