Garwood Glacier (78°1′S 163°57′E / 78.017°S 163.950°E / -78.017; 163.950Coordinates: 78°1′S 163°57′E / 78.017°S 163.950°E / -78.017; 163.950) is a glacier occupying the northwest part of Garwood Valley, in Victoria Land, Antarctica. It was first mapped by the British National Antarctic Expedition (1901–04), but was not named until 1911, when Thomas Griffith Taylor of the British Antarctic Expedition, 1910–13, named it for Edmund J. Garwood, professor of geology and mineralogy at the University of London.[1]
