A rugged mountain range, over 80 mi long and about 10 mi wide, rising between Priestley and Campbell Glaciers in Victoria Land and extending from the edge of the polar plateau to Terra Nova Bay. Peaks in the low and mid portions of the range were observed by early British expeditions to the Ross Sea. The range was mapped in detail by the USGS from surveys and USN air photos, 1955-63. Named by US-ACAN in recognition of the splendid support to research provided by the U.S. Navy's Operation Deep Freeze expeditions to Antarctica for many years beginning in 1954.
