    At 400 Km long and 200 Km wide, Lambert Glacier in Antarctica is the world’s largest glacier.

    The Pine Island Glacier of Antarctica is also one of the world’s largest, although it is raising concerns these days because it is rapidly melting (for a glacier) and has to potential to raise sea levels between an estimated 3 to 6 feet.  

    Some other glaciers that deserve honorable mention for size are:  the Jakobshavn Glacier and Petermann Glacier, both in Greenland and both of which are also breaking, and Iceland’s Vatnajokull, which is Europe’s largest glacier.
