Caption: Lambert glacier. Infrared satellite image of part of the Lambert Glacier (upper left), the world's biggest, in Mac Robertson Land, Antarctica. North is at top. Ice appears white & blue, and exposed rock is black. Flow lines in the upper left of the image indicate the flow of ice northwards towards the ocean. At upper right is Beaver Lake, a large depression which diverts part of the glacier's flow. The Lambert glacier is 400 kilometres long. Glaciers are river-like flows made from snow comp- acted into ice. This acts as a viscous fluid so that a glacier moves at 1-30 metres a day. Image taken by the French SPOT-1 satellite in March.
