Names that other countries have for this feature:
Glacier 6 km long and 4 km wide, flowing west off James Ross Island into Röhss Bay. Named by UK-APC after Jean-Marc Barnola, leader of the French/UK ice core drilling projects on James Ross Island and Berkner Island. The drilling projects on both James Ross Island and Berkner Island were jointly undertaken by the UK and France. Jean-Marc Barnola was a leader in the French participation in the joint drilling activities. He had a landmark contribution at the national and international level in the field of Earth climate studies, through his pioneering reconstruction of the carbon dioxide evolution in the atmosphere. He was the first author of an iconic publication published with two others in Nature in 1987, which reported the first CO2 curve from the Russian Vostok ice core, showing the remarkable link between carbon dioxide mixing ratio and temperature during a full glacial-interglacial climatic cycle. This curve formed part of the scientific basis for the Kyoto Protocol.
