Raudberg in the Norwegian language means Red Mountain. Three terrain features in East Antarctica bear the name Raudberg:

  1. Raudberg Pass
  2. Raudberg Valley
  3. Raudberget

Raudberg Pass[edit]

Raudberg Pass (72°38′S 3°22′W / 72.633°S 3.367°W / -72.633; -3.367Coordinates: 72°38′S 3°22′W / 72.633°S 3.367°W / -72.633; -3.367) is a pass between Kulen Mountain and Raudberget in the Borg Massif of Queen Maud Land. Mapped by Norwegian cartographers from surveys and air photos by Norwegian-British-Swedish Antarctic Expedition (NBSAE) (1949–52) and named for its proximity to Raudberget.

Raudberg Valley[edit]

Raudberg Valley (72°39′S 3°26′W / 72.650°S 3.433°W / -72.650; -3.433) is the main ice-filled valley, about 20 nautical miles (37 km) long, extending northeastward through the Borg Massif of Queen Maud Land. Mapped by Norwegian cartographers from surveys and air photos by Norwegian-British-Swedish Antarctic Expedition (NBSAE) (1949–52) and named for its proximity to Raudberget.[1]

Raudberget[edit]

Raudberget (72°38′S 3°30′W / 72.633°S 3.500°W / -72.633; -3.500) is a prominent mountain just northeast of Hogskavlen Mountain in the Borg Massif of Queen Maud Land.
