Narrative

An ice dome overlying the borders of the Ross Dependency, the Australian Antarctic Territory and Terre Adélie near the South Pole. It extends east-west and rises to over 3 100 m. The dome was crossed by Amundsen's and Scott's parties on their journeys to the South Pole, 1911-12 and was mentioned as a major ridge rather than as an isolated dome. Mapped by radio echo sounding by the Scott Polar Research Institute.

Named For

Named for the Cambridge University Titan computer, which was used to process nearly all the radio echo sounding data for this part of Antarctica.
