Names that other countries have for this feature:
A heavily crevassed glacier, about 6 miles wide and of undetermined length, descending from the interior upland of Victoria Land in a north-easterly and easterly direction to the Ross Sea. First charted by the BAE, 1907-09, who named it for Captain John King Davis, first officer and later captain of the expedition ship Nimrod. Davis was second in command of Mawson's 1911-14 antarctic expedition and master of the Aurora. During this expedition he discovered the Davis Sea and Queen Maud Land. He was commander of the 1916-17 Aurora Antarctic Relief Expedition to rescue the stranded Ross Sea Party of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, and was second in command of Mawson's 1929-30 Antarctic Expedition and commander of the Discovery on that occasion.
