Siple Dome (81°40′S 148°50′W / 81.667°S 148.833°W / -81.667; -148.833Coordinates: 81°40′S 148°50′W / 81.667°S 148.833°W / -81.667; -148.833) is an ice dome approximately 100 km wide and 100 km long, located 130 km east of Siple Coast in Antarctica. Charles Bentley and Robert Thomas established a "strain rosette" on this feature to determine ice movement in 1973-74. They referred to the feature as Siple Dome because of its proximity to Siple Coast.
