Narrative

A broad glacier, about 40 mi long and 5 mi wide, flowing E through the Ellsworth Mountains and separating the Sentinel and Heritage Ranges. It is nourished by ice from the plateau W of the mountains and by the Nimitz and Splettstoesser Glaciers. Minnesota Glacier merges into the larger Rutford Ice Stream at the E margin of the Ellsworth Mountains. Named by US-ACAN for the University of Minnesota, at Minneapolis, which sent research parties to the Ellsworth Mountains in 1961-62, 1962-63 and 1963-64.
