Narrative

A small glacier immediately S of Miers Glacier in Victoria Land. The heads of these two glaciers are separated by a low ridge, and the E end of this ridge is almost completely surrounded by the snouts of the two glaciers, which nearly meet in the bottom of the valley, about 1 mi above Lake Miers, into which they drain. Named by the N.Z. Northern Survey Party of the CTAE (1956-58) after Lt. (later Sir) Jameson B. Adams, second in command of the shore party of the BrAE (1907-09), who was one of the men to accompany Shackleton to within 97 mi of the South Pole.
