Algie Glacier (82°8 S 162°5 ECoordinates: 82°8 S 162°5 E) is a 25-mile (40 km) long glacier which flows southeast into Nimrod Glacier just west of the Nash Range of Antarctica. It was named by the New Zealand Ross Sea Committee for R.M. Algie who, as Minister in Charge of Scientific and Industrial Research, gave his strong support to the New Zealand party of the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition, 1956 58.A glacier is a large persistent body of ice that forms where the accumulation of snow exceeds its ablation (melting and sublimation) over many years, often centuries. At least 0.1 km² in area and 50 m thick, but often much larger, a glacier slowly deforms and flows due to stresses induced by its weight.
