Narrative

Glacier 8 mi long in the SE part of Arrowsmith Peninsula, which flows S to merge with the ice in Jones Channel, on the W coast of Graham Land. With Antevs Glacier, to the N, it forms a transverse depression extending to the SW part of Lallemand Fjord. First sighted from the air in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill. Its lower reaches were surveyed in 1949 by the FIDS, and the glacier named by them for Albert Heim, Swiss glaciologist and author in 1885 of Handbuch der Gletscherkunde.
