A glacier tongue descending from the slopes of Mount Erebus on Ross Island and extending 13.5km out into Erebus Bay (as of 2019). As part of it is floating and the feature is ever growing outward, the tip periodically breaks off such as during summer sea-ice breakouts. Feature shown on: NZ AntTopo50-MF13
Named by the National Antarctic Expedition (Discovery expedition, NAE) 1901-04. During the British Antarctic Expedition (Terra Nova expedition, BrAE) 1910-13 the tongue was found to be shorter, with several more kilometres of the tongue then breaking off in March 1911.
