SCAR Gazetteer Information: Each place can have one or more entries in the SCAR Composite Gazetteer, dependant on its origin. By viewing an individual entry, you may see multiple references to the same place. SCAR uses a more general feature type coding, so each place will, in general, have multiple feature types.

A blue icefield between Austhamaren Peak and Bulken Hill in the Sor Rondane Mountains. Mapped by Norwegian cartographers in 1957 from air photos taken by USN Operation HighJump, 1946-47, and named Bulkisen because of association with Bulken Hill.

Eld Peak (AUS) 69° 19' 59.9" S 157° 15' 00.0" E Peak
Name ID: 2029 Place ID: 4153

A mountain about 19 km south of Magga Peak in Oates Land. On 16 January 1840, Passed Midshipmen Eld and Reynolds on the Peacock, one of the ships of the USEE under Wilkes, reported hills in this direction. The hills were plotted on Wilkes' chart in about 67degrees S, 156 degrees E. It has not been possible to positively identify the feature named Eld Peak by Wilkes and the name has therefore been arbitrarily applied to this feature.
