Description (see definition): A small glacier just W of Brattstrand Bluffs on the SE shore of Prydz Bay. A short tongue from this glacier extends seaward to nearby Hovde Island. First mapped by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37, which named the island. This glacier was named "Hovde Ice Tongue" by John H. Roscoe in 1952 following his study of aerial photographs of the area taken by U.S. Navy (USN) Operation Highjump, 1946-47, but the term glacier is considered appropriate to this small feature.
