Description (see definition): Glacier 16 mi long on the W coast of Graham Land, flowing W into Darbel Bay to the N of Hopkins Glacier. First surveyed by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1946-47, and named West Gould Glacier. With East Gould Glacier it was reported to fill a transverse depression across Graham Land, but further survey in 1957 showed no close topographical alignment between the two. The name Gould has been limited to the east glacier and an entirely new name, for Angus B. Erskine, leader of the first Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) party to travel down the glacier and to survey it in detail, has been approved for the west glacier.
