Lago Argentino in the foreground. At the time shown, this glacier is approx. 250 square kilometres large and 30 kilometres long. It originates at the Southern Patagonian Ice Field and calves into the lake along an ice front of 5 km length which sometimes impounds one lanke branch, leading to episodic breakthroughs.
