Name Latitude Longitude Feature Type
Borchgrevink Glacier (NZL) 73° 04' 00.0" S 168° 30' 00.0" E Glacier
Name ID: 112838 Place ID: 1596

A large glacier flowing from the south-east end of the Victory Mountains to pass between Mt Phillips and Mt Lubbock, and thence projecting into the sea for several miles as a floating ice tongue which forms the northernmost part of the Lady Newnes Ice Shelf. It was discovered by Borchgrevink in 1901 in the "Southern Cross". The vessel was tied to sea-ice on the south side of Mt Lubbock, observations were made, and a dog-sledge was taken across the sea-ice to the westward for a few miles, probably to the floating face of the Borchegrevink Glacier. Named by the NZ Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition 1957-58.
