Lambert Glacier

Lambert Glacier is one of the world's largest and longest glaciers, covering over 1 million square kilometers along a length of over 400 kilometers. It drains a substantial portion of East Antarctica into the Amery Ice Shelf. The upper reaches of the glacier are characterized by a sinuous confluence of tributary glaciers funneled northward by the Mawson Escarpment. The grounding line, indicating the zone where the ice begins to float, was determined by Fricker (1998).

NOTE: White and/or blue colors used in the annotations are simply for better contrast against the background and have no other significance.
