Name ID: 122795 Place ID: 1679

A group of north-south trending mountains, about 90 mi long and 35 mi wide, bounded by the coast on the north and by the Rennick, Canham, Black and Lillie Glaciers in other quadrants. The seaward end was first sighted in February 1911 from the Terra Nova, under Lt. Harry L.L. Pennell, RN, and subsequently named "Bowers Hills." Lt. Henry R. Bowers perished with Capt. Robert F. Scott on the return from the South Pole in 1912. The feature was photographed from U.S. Navy aircraft in 1946-47 and 1960-62, and was surveyed and mapped by USGS in 1962-63. The name was amended to Bowers Mountains upon USGS mapping which showed the group to be a major one with peaks rising to nearly 2,600 meters.
