Location of Adelie Land in Antarctica
|Length||6 nmi (11 km; 7 mi)|
|Width||3 nmi (6 km; 3 mi)|
Liotard Glacier (Coordinates: ) is a channel glacier in Antarctica. It is about 3 nautical miles (6 km) wide and 6 nautical miles (11 km) long, and flows north-northeast from the continental ice, terminating in a small ice tongue about 4 nautical miles (7 km) west of Hélène Island. The glacier was delineated from air photos taken by U.S. Navy Operation Highjump, 1946–47, and was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Andre-Frank Liotard, the leader of the French Antarctic Expedition, 1949–51, whose group completed the initial survey of the coastal features as far westward as this glacier.
