Description (see definition): A range of mainly bare rock peaks, ridges and mountains about 20 mi long and 6 mi wide in the Orvin Mountains of Queen Maud Land. The feature stands between Drygalski Mountains on the west and Gagarin Mountains and Conrad Mountains on the east. Kurze Mountains were discovered and plotted from air photos by the German Antarctic Expedition (GerAE) under Ritscher, 1938-39, who named them for the Dir. of the Naval Division of the former Marineleitung (German Admiralty). They were remapped by Norsk Polarinstitutt from surveys and air photos taken by the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition (NorAE), 1956-60, and given the name "Holtedahlfjella." The correlation of the prior name (Kurze) with this feature is quite definite and is recommended for the sake of international uniformity and historical continuity.
