Names that other countries have for this feature:
A major glacier over 60 mi long, descending SE from the plateau of Victoria Land, between Mountaineer Range and Malta Plateau, and terminating at Lady Newnes Bay, Ross Sea, where it forms a floating glacier tongue. Its lower reaches and entrance to its valley were reconnoitered in December 1958 by Capt. John Cadwalader, USN, and two members of NZGSAE, in a flight from the icebreakers USS Glacier and USS Staten Island which were lying close off the S end of Coulman Island, in an attempt to land expedition members on the mainland. Named by NZGSAE, 1958-59, as a tribute to the work of mariners in Antarctic research and exploration.
