Narrative

A glacier on the E side of the Royal Society Range, descending from a high cirque just SE of Mount Rucker and flowing E toward Walcott Glacier. In the measurements made of this glacier by the VUWAE (1960-61), one of the survey angles, by chance, was exactly one radian, and the glacier came to be referred to by this term.
