Description (see definition): A broad glacier, nearly 200 miles long, which is one of the largest in Antarctica. It rises on the polar plateau westward of Mesa Range and is 20 to 30 miles wide, narrowing to 10 miles near the coast. It takes its name from Rennick Bay where the glacier reaches the sea. The seaward part of the glacier was photographed by U.S. Navy (USN) Operation Highjump, 1946-47. In early 1960, Lieutenant Commander Robert L. Dale, pilot of U.S. Navy (USN) Squadron VX-6, evacuated the U.S. Antarctic Research Program (USARP) Victoria Land Traverse from 7238S, 16132E, on this glacier, from where an aerial photographic reconnaissance was made to Rennick Bay on the coast.
