Bonne Glacier (77°53′S 163°50′E / 77.883°S 163.833°E / -77.883; 163.833Coordinates: 77°53′S 163°50′E / 77.883°S 163.833°E / -77.883; 163.833) is a steep glacier 1 nautical mile (2 km) west-southwest of Hobbs Peak, descending northwest from Hobbs Ridge into Blue Glacier, in Victoria Land. The name is one of a group in the area associated with surveying applied in 1993 by the New Zealand Geographic Board. It was named after the Bonne map projection, a derivative conical projection, in which the parallels are spaced at true distances along meridians which are plotted as curves.[1]
