Cape Burks

Cape Burks is a prominent rock cape, the northwestern seaward extension of McDonald Heights, marking the east side of the entrance of Hull Bay on the coast of Marie Byrd Land. The cape was sighted and mapped from the USS Glacier, January 31, 1962, and was named for Lieutenant Commander Ernest Burks, U.S. Navy, senior helicopter pilot on the Glacier and the first person to set foot on the cape.

Russkaya Station was established on Cape Burks by the Soviet Union in 1980.
