Narrative

Glacier flowing NE from Tyndall Mountains, Arrowsmith Peninsula, into Lallemand Fjord, Loubet Coast. Photographed from the air by FIDASE in 1957. Named by the UK-APC in association with the names of glaciologists grouped in the area after Horace Benedict de Saussure (1740-99), Swiss naturalist and physicist, who in 1787 was the first to recognize that erratic boulders had been moved great distances by ice.
