Names that other countries have for this feature:
A glacier, about 3 miles wide and about 25 miles long, flowing in a south-east direction along the southern slopes of Mts Larsen, De Gerlache, and Crummer to the Nansen Sheet on the east coast of Victoria Land. Discovered by the South Magnetic Pole Party, led by David, of the BAE, 1907-09. They followed its course on their way to the plateau beyond, and called it Larsen Glacier because it flowed south-east from Mt Larsen. The mountain was named for Captain Carl Anton Larsen, whose explorations on the east coast of Graham Land marked the beginning of commercial whaling operations in the Antarctic.
