Description (see definition): Glacier 3.5 mi long flowing SW from the head of Depot Glacier into Duse Bay, Trinity Peninsula. This glacier and Depot Glacier together fill the depression between Hope and Duse Bays which marks the northern limit of Tabarin Peninsula. Mapped in 1946 and 1956 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS), who named the feature in association with Tabarin Peninsula. "Operation Tabarin" (the forerunner of Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS)) was derived from the "Bal Tabarin" in Paris. In Recueil General des Oeuvres et Fantaisies de Tabarin, Tabarin was the buffoon who attracted the crowd to the booth where Mondor sold his quack medicines.
