Names that other countries have for this feature:
flowing SW into Jones Channel, Arrowsmith Peninsula, Loubet Coast, was seen from the air by BGLE in 1936 (Rymill, 1938a, map facing p.496); surveyed from the ground in its lower reaches by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in November 1949; in association with the names of glaciologists grouped in this area, named after Albert Heim (1849-1937), Swiss geologist and glaciologist; author of Handbuch der Gletscherkunde (Stuttgart, 1885), the first work to deal with the complete study of glaciers from their microstructure to their world-wide distribution with its climatic implications (APC, 1955, p.11; BA chart 3570, 21.ix.1957). Further surveys by FIDS from "Detaille Island" and "Horseshoe Island", 1955-57, showed that the present feature is continuous via a central col with a glacier flowing N into Lallemand Fjord, and the names South Heim Glacier (APC, 1959a, p.11; SPRI, 1960, p.52; BA, 1961, p.189) and North Heim Glacier (Antevs Glacier, q.v.) were applied respectively to the two glaciers. But the name Heim Glacier was later re-applied to the present feature (APC, 1960, p.4; BAS 250P sheet SQ 19-20/14 (Ext.), 1-DOS 1978). Heim Glacier, South (BA, 1961, p.433).
