A short history of the glaciological observations made in Argentina since the time of Darwin is presented. Four glaciers under
study are described and an inventory prepared of the principal glaciers in (1) the Puna de Atacama (22°35′ to 27°03′S), (2)
Cordillera proper (27°45′ to 44°56′S), and (3) Patagonic Ice (47°35′ to 50°44′S). The possible use of meteorological satellites
is discussed in connection with recording the extent and variations in glacial fields. Tiros-IV satellite photographs of the
north and south lobules of the Patagonic Ice are shown.
