Name[edit]

What is the origin of the name "Mount Cleveland"? Was it renamed after US President Grover Cleveland? If not, who or what? Wondering, -- Infrogmation (talk) 02:30, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Try to check USGS GNIS. - Darwinek (talk) 08:44, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

I have added the name origin and added it to WP Arctic, Islands, and Geography--Av9 (talk) 15:08, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

Are kind of sparse. There's references to a 2001/2002 expedition but I'm having trouble finding it. Otherwise almost everything is based on satellite observation. ResMar 16:59, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Note[edit]

User:Ucucha made two changes, Eruptive history: trans-Atlantic flights don't usually reach Alaska. He might be wrong. I think the flights between East Asia and Western Europe fly over the Aleutian Islands. --Chris.urs-o (talk) 07:25, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Such flights are not trans-Atlantic, I believe. To be trans-Atlantic, they have to, you know, fly over the Atlantic. Ucucha 12:53, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
Ok. You seem to be right. I checked on a globe with a thread. --Chris.urs-o (talk) 13:40, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

On the thesis by Steven James Smith used multiple times as a reference: the citations should use page numbers, ie Smith, pg. 15; Smith, pg. 52. Grsz11 20:35, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

The current citation style is perfectly fine. Preference is never given to one style (Harvard) over the other (wiki). ResMar 23:42, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

"concave-up" shape[edit]

What is the usual English-language expression for the impenetrable "concave-up" describing its shape?--Wetman (talk) 14:46, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure what you mean by "impenetrable concave-up", but here are two possibilities:
  /-.____.-\
 /          \
/            \
"bowl-shaped"
   _.----._
  /        \
 /          \
/            \
"dome-shaped"

I would say "concave-up" and "bowl-shaped" are the same, but it doesn't look "impenetrable" to me. I would use "dome-shaped" for an "impenetrable" shape. Johnson487682 (talk) 19:57, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
