Narrative

A glacier flowing northwest into Lindblad Cove, Charcot Bay on the Davis Coast of Graham Land. This feature lies 2 miles northeast of McNeile Glacier and is the northernmost glacier flowing into Lindblad Cove (q.v.), a name with which Landau Glacier is associated. Named by US-ACAN (2009) after Denise Landau for her role in the development of environmentally responsible policies for the growing Antarctic tourism industry, serving as the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) spokesperson to the Antarctic Treaty from 1997-2008 and as Executive Director of IAATO from 1999-2008. She was instrumental in guiding the development of a system within IAATO that provides transparency to environmental practices and operations of tour operators in the Antarctic and serves as an effective mechanism for self regulation and adherence to laws and regulations derived from the Antarctic Treaty.
