Names that other countries have for this feature:
Steep glacier 4 mi long and 6 mi wide, with very prominent hummocks and crevasses, flowing E between Mount Bouvier and Mount Mangin into Stonehouse Bay on the E side of Adelaide Island. The lower reaches of the glacier were first sighted and surveyed in 1909 by the FrAE under Charcot, and resurveyed in 1948 by the FIDS. The upper reaches were mapped from air photos taken by the RARE, 1947-48, and by the FIDASE, 1956-57. So named by the FIDS because of the very broken nature of the glacier's surface.
