Closest operations HUB: <5km to Siple Dome

An ice dome approximately 100 km wide and 100 km long, located 130 km east of Siple Coast. Charles Bentley and Robert Thomas established a "strain rosette" on this feature to determine ice movement in 1973-74. They referred to the feature as Siple Dome because of its proximity to Siple Coast (https://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/gaz/scar/display_name.cfm?gaz_id=131647).
