Description (see definition): Ice-covered plateau, over 300 m elevation, extending between Sandefjord Peaks and Deacon Hill in the western part of Coronation Island, in the South Orkney Islands. Named by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) following a survey by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1948-50. This naming revives in an altered form a name given by James Weddell in 1822. Being unaware of the prior discovery of Coronation Island by Captain Nathaniel Palmer and Captain George Powell, and its naming at that time, Weddell renamed the island "Pomona" or "Mainland" after the island in the northern Orkney Islands. That name was published by Weddell in 1825 but did not survive.
