Nausea Knob is a prominent outcropping of jumbled rocks, 3633 m, formed as a lava flow on the northwest upper slope of the active cone of Mount Erebus, Ross Island. The feature is near a camp site used mainly in the 1970s by teams working at the summit of the volcano. So named because many working at the camp suffered from nausea due to high elevation mountain sickness.
