Four prominent converging glaciers which flow into the W side of Whirlwind Inlet on the E coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. Discovered by Sir Hubert Wilkins on his flight of Dec. 20, 1928, the glaciers were so named because their relative position was suggestive of the radial cylinders of his Wright Whirlwind engine. The Whirlwind Glaciers, comprising Flint, Demorest, Matthes, and Chamberlin Glaciers, were photographed from the air by the USAS in 1940; charted by the FIDS in 1948.
