Narrative

flowing NE into head of Hope Bay, Trinity Peninsula, was roughly mapped by SwAE and named Depot-Gletscher because, as seen from Antarctic Sound on 15 January 1902, it appeared to provide a possible site for a winter station or depot (Nordenskjöld and others, 1904b, Vol. 1, p.63). Depôt Glacier (Nordenskjöld and others, 1905, p.44). Depôt-Gletcher [sic] (Nordenskjöld and others, 1907, p.24). The glacier was resurveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay", 1945-46.
