It is a major valley glacier, at least 80 miles long, and probably over 100 miles long, flowing eastwards from the Polar Plateau to the Ross Sea. The small coastal indentation at its mouth was called Tucker Inlet by Ross, and this name was adopted for the glacier. It is remarkably free from major ice-falls or other obstacles to travel, though its gentle gradient is broken by two small easily negotiated features, named Biscuit Step and Pemmican Step. The glacier was named by the NZ Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition, 1957-58.
