This name originates from Australia. It is part of the Australian Antarctic Gazetteer and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.
The automatic weather station (formerly known as G041) was established in October 1984. It is located at an elevation of 2790 m.
Named for Dr Uwe Radok, an Australian Antarctic glaciologist. Radok undertook research in meteorology and glaciology at the University of Melbourne with Dr Fritz Loewe, becoming Head of the Department on Loewe's retirement. During the International Geophysical Year Radok developed the ANARE glaciology project with Loewe leading to the first ANARE glaciologist wintering at an Australian Station (Mawson) in 1957. He continued to supervise the Antarctic glaciology research program until it was well established as an Antarctic Division activity. The naming of the automatic weather station for Dr Uwe Radok recognises the great contribution he made to Antarctic science.
