It was discovered in January 1985 by chance in a snowstorm and fog by the joint U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)-British Antarctic Survey (BAS) geological party led by Peter D. Rowley. party is significantly older than the oldest previously dated rock from southern Antarctic Peninsula. The name is "nowhere" spelled backwards and was suggested by Rowley because the field party was uncertain of its location during the foul weather.
