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.
The largest glaciers in each continent are:
1. North America- Hubbard Glacier2. South America- Perito Moreno Glacier3. Europe- Vatnajokull Glacier 4. Africa- Glaciers of Kilimanjaro 5. Asia- Siachen Glacier6. Australia- Heard Island Glacier7. Antarctica- Lambert Glacier
