Name Latitude Longitude Feature Type
Ahlmann Ridge (USA) 71° 50' 00.0" S 2° 25' 00.0" W Ridge
Name ID: 121623 Place ID: 125

A broad, mainly ice-covered ridge, about 70 mi long, surmounted by scattered, low peaks. It rises between Schytt and Jutulstraumen Glaciers and extends from Borg Massif northward to Fimbul Ice Shelf in Queen Maud Land. The area was first photographed from aircraft of the GerAE (1938-39) and peaks in this vicinity were roughly plotted. The Stein Nunataks and Witte Peaks, named by the GerAE, appear to coincide with the NE part of the Ahlmann Ridge. The feature was mapped in detail from surveys and air photos by the NBSAE (1949-52) and air photos by the Norwegian expedition (1958-59). Named for Hans Wilhelmsson Ahlmann, chairman of the Swedish committee for the NBSAE.
