Maaske Dome (85°58′S 144°0′W / 85.967°S 144°W / -85.967; -144Coordinates: 85°58′S 144°0′W / 85.967°S 144°W / -85.967; -144) is an icecapped, dome-like elevation 2 nautical miles (4 km) long, rising above the northern part of the California Plateau in Antarctica. It was mapped by the United States Geological Survey from ground surveys and U.S. Navy air photos in 1960–63, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Lieutenant Gary L. Maaske, a U.S. Navy helicopter pilot at McMurdo Station during the 1962–63 and 1963–64 seasons.[1]
