Müller Ice Shelf (67°15′S, 66°52′W) is situated at the southern end of Lallemand Fjord. It is a small ice shelf ([similar]80 km2) fed by Brückner and Antevs glaciers, which both flow northward off the central peaks of Arrowsmith Peninsula; the ice shelf contains an ice rise (Humphreys Ice Rise). Data sources have indicated that not only has the ice front retreated since 1947 but also that there have been two advances. This paper describes how these changes were recorded using simple photogrammetric techniques.
