Negribreen is glacier at Spitsbergen, Svalbard. The glacier debouches into Storfjorden, in Olav V Land and Sabine Land, and forms a wide glacier front with the moving extreme point Kapp Antinori. The glacier covers an area of about 1,180 km2 (460 sq mi). It is named after Italian geographer Christoforo Negri.[1][2]
