Tillberg Peak ( Coordinates: ) is a largely ice-free peak, 610 m, at the northeast extremity of Kyustendil Ridge on the east coast of Graham Land, Antarctica. Situated on the south side of lower Drygalski Glacier, 3.9 miles (6.3 km) north of Tashukov Nunatak.
The name Tillberg was given to a group of four rocky outcrops in this area but, since they are not conspicuous topographically, the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) in 1963 recommended that the name be transferred to this more useful landmark. Named by Otto Nordenskjold after Judge Knut Tillberg, contributor to the Swedish Antarctic Expedition, 1901–04.

Ice Gate Glacier is a narrow hanging glacier, tributary to Astudillo Glacier, between rock spurs on the west slope of Dallmeyer Peak, Danco Coast, Antarctica. It was named by the Polish Antarctic Expedition in about 1992, probably from the gatelike appearance of the spurs at the junction of the two glaciers.
The Aureole Hills are a pair of smooth, conical, ice-covered hills, the higher reaching to 1,080 metres (3,540 ft), standing close west of the north end of Detroit Plateau, Trinity Peninsula on Antarctica.

The Doggers Nunataks are a group of peaks 30 nautical miles (60 km) southwest of Rayner Peak, to the southwest of Edward VIII Bay. They were photographed in October 1956 by Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) aircraft and surveyed in December 1958 by G.A. Knuckey during a dog-sledge journey from Amundsen Bay to Mawson Station. The group was named by the Antarctic Names Committee of Australia for the members of the 1958 ANARE dog sledging party who were always referred to as the "Doggers."
Harmer Glacier is a glacier 3 nautical miles (6 km) long, flowing southwest from Starbuck Peak to the sea close north of Ranvik, on the south coast of South Georgia. It was surveyed by the South Georgia Survey in the period 1951–57, and named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee for Sir Sidney F. Harmer.
The Aramis Range is the third range south in the Prince Charles Mountains, situated 11 miles southeast of the Porthos Range and extending for about 30 miles in a southwest–northeast direction. First visited in January 1957 by Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) southern party led by W.G. Bewsher, who named it for a character in Alexandre Dumas' novel The Three Musketeers, the most popular book read on the southern journey.
Andreassen Point is a low ice-free point in northern James Ross Island, fronting on Herbert Sound, 8 nautical miles (15 km) south of Cape Lachman. Probably first seen by Otto Nordenskiöld in 1903, it was surveyed by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey in 1945, and named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee for F.L. Andreassen, first mate on the Antarctic, the ship of the Swedish Antarctic Expedition, 1901–04.
Copestake Peak is a peak rising to 655 metres (2,150 ft) on the south side of Neumayer Glacier, South Georgia. It was named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee for Paul Goodall-Copestake, who was British Antarctic Survey biological assistant at Grytviken, 1980–82, and Station Commander at Bird Island, 1982–83.
Swift Glacier is a steep glacier about 2 nautical miles (3.7 km) long, close west of Jefford Point, James Ross Island. Named by United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) following Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) surveys, 1958–61. The name is descriptive, this being one of the most active glaciers on the island.
The Glover Rocks are a group of rocks lying northwest of Avian Island, off the south end of Adelaide Island, Antarctica. They were named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee for John F. Glover, 3rd Engineer of RRS John Biscoe (1962–63), the ship assisting the Royal Navy Hydrographic Survey Unit which charted the feature in 1963.
Meyers Nunatak is a nunatak located 10 nautical miles (19 km) east-southeast of Mount Manthe, at the southeast end of the Hudson Mountains in Antarctica. It was mapped by United States Geological Survey from surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1960–66, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Herbert Meyers, a United States Antarctic Research Program geomagnetist at Byrd Station in 1960–61.
McIlroy Peak is a peak rising to 745 metres (2,440 ft) west of Husvik Harbour and 0.8 nautical miles (1.5 km) south of Mount Barren, South Georgia. It was named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee in 1990 after Dr. James A. McIlroy, surgeon on the British Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, 1914–16, in the Endurance, and on the Shackleton–Rowett Expedition, 1921–22, in the Quest.
The Medina Peaks are rugged, mainly ice-free, peaks surmounting a ridge 15 nautical miles (28 km) long, extending north along the east side of Goodale Glacier to the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica. Some of the peaks were first seen and roughly mapped by the Byrd Antarctic Expedition, 1928–30. They were named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Guillermo Medina, Technical Director of the U.S. Navy Hydrographic Office, 1954–60, and of the Naval Oceanographic Office, 1960–64.
The Hitchcock Heights are a mostly ice-covered mountain mass, 1,800 metres (5,900 ft) high, between Maitland Glacier and Apollo Glacier at the south side of Mobiloil Inlet, on the east coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. They were discovered and photographed by Sir Hubert Wilkins on his flight of December 20, 1928, and rephotographed by Lincoln Ellsworth in 1935. The feature was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names in 1952 for Charles B. Hitchcock of the American Geographical Society, who by utilizing these photographs assisted in constructing the first reconnaissance map of this area.
Seaplane Point is a point at the south side of Curtiss Bay, on the northeast coast of Chavdar Peninsula on Davis Coast, Graham Land. Mapped from air photos taken by Hunting Aerosurveys (1955–57). Named by United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) in association with Curtiss Bay; Glenn Curtiss, after whom the bay is named, pioneered seaplanes from 1911 onward.
Holmes Glacier is a broad glacier debouching into the western part of Porpoise Bay about 10 nautical miles (20 km) south of Cape Spieden. It was delineated from aerial photographs taken by U.S. Navy Operation Highjump (1946–47), and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names after Dr. Silas Holmes, Assistant Surgeon on the brig Porpoise during the United States Exploring Expedition (1838–42) under Lieutenant Charles Wilkes.
Cape Kater is a cape fringed by rocks, forming the northwestern extremity of Whittle Peninsula on the west coast of Graham Land. This coast was sketched by a British expedition 1828–31, under Henry Foster, who named a cape in this region after Captain Henry Kater, a member of the committee which planned the expedition. This region was more fully mapped by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition, 1901–04, under Otto Nordenskjold, who gave the name "Cape Gunnar" to this cape. The name Kater perpetuates the earlier naming.
Larssen Peak is a peak, 1,550 metres (5,100 ft) high, between the Three Brothers and Marikoppa in the Allardyce Range of South Georgia. It was surveyed by the South Georgia Survey in the period 1951–57, and named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee for Harald Larssen, manager at the Compañía Argentina de Pesca station, Grytviken, 1951–54.
Mount Moriya is the rounded, ice-covered peak rising to 1634 m in Lovech Heights on Nordenskjöld Coast in Graham Land, Antarctica. It is surmounting Rogosh Glacier to the south and northwest, Zlokuchene Glacier to the east-northeast, and Risimina Glacier to the southeast.
Tashukov Nunatak is the rocky ridge 1.8 km long in northwest–southeast direction and 1.7 km wide, rising to 768 m on the northeast side of Zlokuchene Glacier on Nordenskjöld Coast in Graham Land, Antarctica.
