Description (see definition): Glacier 12 mi long on the E coast of Graham Land, flowing SE into Mill Inlet, to the W of Aagaard Glacier. First surveyed by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1946-47, and named East Gould Glacier. With West Gould Glacier it was reported to fill a transverse depression across Graham Land, but further survey in 1957 showed that there is no close topographical alignment between the two. The name Gould, for Rupert T. Gould (1890-1948), British polar historian and cartographer, has been limited to this glacier and an entirely new name (Erskine Glacier, q.v.) approved for the west glacier.
