Narrative

A very large glacier, approximately 100 miles long, draining an extensive area of the Polar Plateau and discharging into the Ross Ice Shelf at Barne Inlet. As the name "Barne Glacier" was already in use in the Ross Dependency, it was suggest by A S Helm that this feature be named in honour of Rear-Admiral E Byrd, the famous American Antarctic explorer who led several expeditions to the Dependency area. The glacier lies in both Australian and New Zealand territory.
