Description (see definition): A steep rock cape on the W side of the Ronne Ice Shelf, marking the SW end of the Orville Coast of Ellsworth Land. The name "Zumberge Nunatak" was given by the US-IGY party from Ellsworth Station, 1957-58, to a rock feature reported to lie 30 mi north of the westernmost traverse station occupied by the party. The cape described, though somewhat farther north, is apparently the only rock feature lying in that direction. Named for James H. Zumberge, American glaciologist who has made studies of the Ross Ice Shelf.
