Summit
A summit is a point on a surface that is higher in elevation than all points immediately adjacent to it. Mathematically, a summit is a local maximum in elevation. The topographic terms "acme", "apex", "peak", and "zenith" are synonymous.Contents1 Definition1.1 Western United States 1.2 Summit
Summit
climbing equipment2 See also 3 References 4 External linksDefinition[edit] The term "top" is generally used only for a mountain peak that is located some distance from the nearest point of higher elevation. For example, a big massive rock next to the main summit of a mountain is not considered a summit. Summits near a higher peak, with some prominence or isolation, but not reaching a certain cutoff value for the quantities, are often considered subsummits (or subpeaks) of the higher peak, and are considered as part of the same mountain. A pyramidal peak is an exaggerated form produced by ice erosion of a mountain top

Mount Hermanson
Mount Hermanson (84°23′S 173°32′E / 84.383°S 173.533°E / -84.383; 173.533Coordinates: 84°23′S 173°32′E / 84.383°S 173.533°E / -84.383; 173.533) is an ice-covered mountain in the Queen Maud Mountains of Antarctica, 3,140 metres (10,300 ft) high, standing at the head of Cunningham Glacier, 4 nautical miles (7 km) southwest of Gray Peak. It was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Captain J.M. Hermanson, U.S. Navy, an air operations officer at McMurdo Station, 1957–58, and Chief of Staff to the U.S. Antarctic Projects Officer, 1959.[1] References[edit]^ "Hermanson, Mount".

Mountain Range
A mountain range or hill range is a series of mountains or hills ranged in a line and connected by high ground. A mountain system or mountain belt is a group of mountain ranges with similarity in form, structure and alignment that have arisen from the same cause, usually an orogeny.[1] Mountain

ranges are formed by a variety of geological processes, but most of the significant ones on Earth

Continent
A continent is one of several very large landmasses of the world. Generally identified by convention rather than any strict criteria, up to seven regions are commonly regarded as continents. Ordered from largest in size to smallest, they are: Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australia.[1] Geologically, the continents largely correspond to areas of continental crust that are found on the continental plates. However, some areas of continental crust are regions covered with water not usually included in the list of continents. Zealandia
Zealandia
is one such area (see submerged continents below). Islands are frequently grouped with a neighbouring continent to divide all the world's land into geopolitical regions

Ross Ice Shelf
The Ross Ice Shelf
Ross Ice Shelf
is the largest ice shelf of Antarctica
Antarctica
(as of 2013 an area of roughly 500,809 square kilometres (193,363 sq mi)[1] and about 800 kilometres (500 mi) across: about the size of France).[2] It is several hundred metres thick. The nearly vertical ice front to the open sea is more than 600 kilometres (370 mi) long, and between 15 and 50 metres (50 and 160 ft) high above the water surface.[3] Ninety percent of the floating ice, however, is below the water surface. Most of Ross Ice Shelf

Geographic Coordinate System
A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system used in geography that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols.[n 1] The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position, and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position

Mount Kaplan
is a massive mountain, the highest in the Hughes Range of Antarctica, standing 5 km (3 mi) southeast of Mount Wexler.[2] The mountain was discovered and photographed by Admiral Byrd on the Baselaying Flight of November 18, 1929, and surveyed by A.P. Crary in 1957–58. Crary named it for Joseph Kaplan, the chairman of the U.S. National Committee for the IGY, 1957–58.[2] References[edit]^ a b Mt.
