Description (see definition): A dome-shaped, ice-covered peninsula between Magnet Bay and Edward VIII Bay. Probably seen by personnel on the William Scoresby in 1936. Mapped by Norwegian cartographers from aerial photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37, and named Gulfplataet (the gulf plateau). It was renamed King Edward Plateau by ANCA, but the form Edward VIII Plateau has been approved by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) to be consistent with the names of nearby Edward VIII Bay and Ice Shelf.
