At the time shown, this glacier is approx. 250 square kilometres large and 30 kilometres long. It originates from the Southern Patagonian Ice Field and calves into Lago Argentino along an ice front of 5 km length which sometimes impounds one branch of the lake (Brazo Rico, left side), leading to episodic breakthroughs. The photo was taken few weeks prior to such a breakthrough.
