Law Dome

Law Dome is a large ice dome which rises to 1,395 m directly south of Cape Poinsett, Antarctica. The feature was roughly mapped by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) from aerial photographs taken by USN Operation Highjump, 1946-47. The dome has been the subject of intensive glaciological and geophysical surveys by ANARE (Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions) between 1962 and 1965.

Law Dome is named by ANCA for Phillip Law, Director of the Australian Antarctic Division from 1949 to 1966.

Famous quotes containing the words dome and/or law:

    Thus to him, to this school-boy under the bending dome of day, is suggested, that he and it proceed from one root; one is leaf and one is flower; relation, sympathy, stirring in every vein. And what is that Root? Is not that the soul of his soul?—A thought too bold,—a dream too wild.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The times have changed. Why do you make a fuss
    For privilege when there’s no law of form?
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
