Closer view of Hektoria Bluffs near bottom of glacier (indicated by 'A' in image above). Ice shelf breakup has made this outcrop accessible by boat.

Crane Glacier, looking east (down-glacier). Large, low-angle, ice-free area at mid-glacier. Extremely promising-looking site.

Lower Crane Glacier, looking west (up-glacier). Upstream arrow shows outcrops in image above. There are also a number of promising-looking sites on the south side of the lower glacier, indicated by the downstream arrow.

Glaciers near Melville Glacier are named after the crew of the Pequod. This is Starbuck Glacier looking west (up-glacier). Promising outcrops at mid-glacier.

More Pequod crew members. This is Flask Glacier looking east (down-glacier). The relatively low-angle outcrop at the south side of the glacier mouth is a likely site.

Mouth of Leppard Glacier looking east (down-glacier). The nunatak at the south side of the glacier mouth is not only bordered by what appears to be a moraine actively forming on the ice surface at present, but shows a horizontal color change halfway up it's ice-proximal slope that suggests a moraine recording a former glacier highstand. This is a little easier to see on the full-size image.

Upper Leppard Glacier looking west (up-glacier). Relatively small outcrops throughout glacier.
