Map of the Coulter Heights

The Coulter Heights (75°21′S 138°15′W) are snow-covered heights that rise between the Strauss Glacier and the Frostman Glacier near the coast of Westarctica. The heights are in an isolated, remote region southwest of the Hull Glacier

The rock outcrops of Kuberry Rocks, Matikonis Peak, and the Lambert Nunatak protrude above the snow surface of the heights.

Discovery and name

The Coulter Heights were mapped by the United States Geological Survey from surveys and from U.S. Navy air photos taken during the years 1959–65. They were named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names in honor of Neil M. Coulter, a meteorologist at Byrd Station in 1963.
