Description (see definition): A gentle knoll that rises to approximately 400 meters on the SW shore of Black Island in Ross Archipelago. The knoll is ice free on the W slope and stands 2 miles SW of Mount Vision. Named by Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) (2007) after Dennis Hoffman, who in 2006 completed 20 years of service in support of the U.S. Antarctic Program. He worked as a carpenter, advanced to the computer tech shop and on to network engineer in eight summer seasons and 13 winters at McMurdo Station. The knoll is near the U.S. Antarctic Project (USAP) communication facility on Black Island. The honoree’s given name rather than surname was approved because of potential confusion by name similarity with a nearby feature name.
