Description:
The Argentina Range is a mountain range of rock peaks and bluffs, long, lying east of the northern part of Forrestal Range in the northeastern portion of the Pensacola Mountains of Antarctica. Discovered and photographed on January 13, 1956 in the course of a US Navy transcontinental nonstop plane flight from McMurdo Sound to Weddell Sea and return.

Named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names after Argentina, which for many years from 1955 maintained a scientific station on the Filchner Ice Shelf at the General Belgrano or Ellsworth Station site. The entire Pensacola Mountains were mapped by United States Geological Survey in 1967 and 1968 from ground surveys and from US Navy tricamera photographs taken in 1964.
