Anderton Glacier (74°41′S 162°22′E / 74.683°S 162.367°E / -74.683; 162.367Coordinates: 74°41′S 162°22′E / 74.683°S 162.367°E / -74.683; 162.367) is a tributary glacier, 7 nautical miles (13 km) long, descending the south slopes of the Eisenhower Range to enter Reeves Glacier between Mount Matz and Andersson Ridge, in Victoria Land, Antarctica. The glacier is situated on the Pennell Coast, a portion of Antarctica lying between Cape Williams and Cape Adare. It was mapped by the United States Geological Survey from surveys and from U.S. Navy air photos, 1955–63, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Peter W. Anderton, a glaciologist at McMurdo Station, summer 1965–66.[1]
