Crevasse Valley Glacier

Crevasse Valley Glacier (76°46′S 145°30′W / 76.767°S 145.5°W / -76.767; -145.5Coordinates: 76°46′S 145°30′W / 76.767°S 145.5°W / -76.767; -145.5) is a broad glacier about 30 miles (50 km) long, flowing west-southwest between Chester Mountains and Saunders Mountain to Sulzberger Ice Shelf in Marie Byrd Land. It was discovered by a sledging party of the Byrd Antarctic Expedition, which visited this area in November-December 1934, and so named because of its extensively crevassed surface.
