Glaciers Flowing into the Gardner Inlet, Antarctica76S 67.5W
Two glaciers flow into the northern part of the Gardner Inlet near the mountains of the Rare Range in Antarctica in this orthorectified image. The name of the range is an acronym for the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition.
The Irvine Glacier (west) is 40 miles (64 km) long, draining southeast between the Guettard Range and the Rare Range. The glacier was named for George J. Irvine, of the Engineer Depot at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, who outlined the RARE photographic program.
The Wetmore Glacier (east) is also about 40 miles (64 km) long, flowing southeast between the Rare Range and Latady Mountains. It was named for Alexander Wetmore, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, who assisted Ronne in laying out the scientific research program of the expedition that discovered it.
