Description (see definition): A glacier, 1.5 mi wide, flowing into the W part of Corinthian Bay, 1 mi W of Challenger Glacier, on the N side of Heard Island. The glacier appears to have been first noted by a sketch in the narrative accompanying the scientific reports of the 1874 Challenger work along the N side of the island. The German Antarctic Expedition (GerAE) under Drygalski, 1901-03, portrayed a single large glacier flowing into Corinthian Bay and named it after Admiral Count Friedrich Baudissin, a sponsor of the expedition. In 1948 the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) determined that more than one glacier discharges into Corinthian Bay. ANCA recommended in 1954 that Baudissin Glacier be adopted for the westernmost and largest of these glaciers.
