O'Higgins Glacier


'''O'Higgins Glacier''' is a glacier located in Bernardo O'Higgins National Park, Chile. It is one of the principal glaciers of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. The summit of the active Lautaro volcano is the top of the accumulation zone of the glacier. The bulk of the glacier is part of the icefield plateau. It flows eastward into O'Higgins Lake and is about 2 km wide at the terminus.

The glacier is also known to be melting caused by Global Warming.
