Description (see definition): Steep glacier 4 mi long and 6 mi wide, with very prominent hummocks and crevasses, flowing E between Mount Bouvier and Mount Mangin into Stonehouse Bay on the E side of Adelaide Island. The lower reaches of the glacier were first sighted and surveyed in 1909 by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Charcot, and resurveyed in 1948 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS). The upper reaches were mapped from air photos taken by the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE), 1947-48, and by the Falkland Islands and Dependencies Aerial Survey Expedition (FIDASE), 1956-57. So named by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) because of the very broken nature of the glacier's surface.
