Description (see definition): Glacier 1.5 mi wide at its mouth and some 15 mi long, flowing W into the N part of Collins Bay on the W coast of Graham Land. Discovered by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE), 1908-10. Named for J. de Trooz, Belgian Minister of the Interior and Public Instruction, who was instrumental in procuring funds for the publication of the scientific results of the Belgian Antarctic Expedition (BelgAE), 1897-99. This application was suggested by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) because of duplication of the name Trooz for what is now known as Cape Perez (q.v.).
