Description (see definition): A ridge that parallels the S flank of Commonwealth Glacier, 0.5 mi N of Mount Falconer, lower Taylor Valley, Victoria Land. The Victoria University's Antarctic Expeditions (VUWAE), 1965-66, called this feature "Smith Ridge," presumably after I. Smith, a member of the Victoria University's Antarctic Expeditions (VUWAE) field party, but that toponym is already in use for other features. It is therefore recommended that it not be approved and that this ridge be named after Edward D. Ghent, leader of the 1965-66 Victoria University's Antarctic Expeditions (VUWAE), later with the Department of Geology, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Date Created (see definition): 09/23/1998
