A dome-shaped mountain, 1761m high, with three slightly elevated sharp peaks, lying on the eastern side of Koettlitz Glacier, along the western edge of the Ross Ice Shelf. Discovered by the NAE, 1901-04, and named for the Morning, a relief ship to the expedition. It is an entirely volcanic formation, but no party has been nearer to it than Heald Island on Koettlitz Glacier, from which point it appears to consist of an aggregate of a large number of large cones and centres of activity rather than material from a single vent. Yet this mountain of massive appearance and centres, since it is situated right upon, or even within, the line of fracture which has given rise to the present coast line of south Victoria Land Upon its western side, if anywhere, should be found evidence of the effect of volcanic activity upon the older rocks of the mainland and possibly some arrangements of the vents showing a relationship between them and the fault line.
