physical region in eastern Antarctica, bounded by the Ross Sea (east) and Wilkes Land (west) and lying north of the Ross Ice Shelf. It was discovered in 1841 by a British expedition led by Sir James Clark Ross, and it was named for Queen Victoria. It consists largely of snow-covered mountains, with heights up to 13,668 feet (4,166 metres) and a network of outlet glaciers draining the adjacent East Antarctic ice sheet. Major ecological and paleoclimate studies have been made in the dry valleys of Victoria Land east of McMurdo Sound.
