Osmic Hill

Osmic Hill is a conspicuous rounded hill which rises abruptly from the surrounding plain to 305 m, marking the north limit of an undulating ridge of hills on the west side of Moraine Fjord, South Georgia. Roughly surveyed by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition, 1901–04, under Nordenskjold. Named by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) following their sketch survey in 1951. The name is one in a group in the vicinity of Discovery Point derived from the chemical fixatives used there in biological work by the FIDS.
