A glacier, 3 mi long, flowing SE from Bettle Peak to a juncture with the Blue Glacier SE of Hannon Hill, in Victoria Land. Named in 1992 by US-ACAN after Larry Leon Amos, civil engineer, USGS; member of the USGS two man astronomic surveying team to South Pole Station and Byrd Station in the 1969-70 field season. Among other work, the team established the position of the Geographic South Pole (previously done 1956) and established a tie to the Byrd Ice Strain net which had been under study for several years.
