Description (see definition): A broad glacier, 9 mi long, which flows S along the W side of Godfrey Upland and joins the Clarke Glacier between Behaim Peak and Elton Hill, in southern Graham Land. F. Ronne and C.R. Eklund of U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS) travelled along this glacier in Jan. 1941. It was photographed from the air by Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE) in Nov. 1947, and it was surveyed by Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in Dec. 1958. So named by UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) because the glacier flows from N to S along the meridian.
