Description (see definition): One of the Petermann Ranges, trending NE-SW for 22 mi from Svarthausane Crags to Gneiskopf Peak, in the Wohlthat Mountains, Queen Maud Land. Discovered and plotted from air photos by German Antarctic Expedition (GerAE), 1938-39, which gave directional names to the eastern, middle and western units of the Petermann Ranges. This range was named Sore Petermannkjeda by Norwegian Antarctic Expedition (NorAE), 1956-60, because of its southern position in association with other units in the Petermann Ranges. A German form of this name has been recommended by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) to agree with spellings adopted for the aforementioned ranges.
