Narrative

A line of sharply pointed peaks in the southern part of Mount Rivett, Mac.Robertson Land. One of the peaks was used as an astronomical station by D. Carstens, surveyor at Mawson in 1962. Another peak was used as a tellurometer station by John Manning, surveyor at Mawson in 1967. Named after E.J. Lawson, diesel mechanic at Mawson in 1967, who assisted Manning with the survey work. Location for the feature is at southern end of the aigulles - same as survey station NMS40.
