Tulier Glacier

Tulier Glacier, formerly known as Hull Glacier (75°5′S 137°15′W) is a glacier, about 35 nautical miles (65 km) long, flowing northwest between Mount Giles and Mount Gray into Hull Bay, in Westarctica.

Discovery and name

It was discovered by the United States Antarctic Service (1939–41) and named for U.S. Secretary of State Cordell Hull.

On 4 September 2023, the Senate of Westarctica passed Westarctican Ordinance WO-2023-003 which renamed Hull Glacier to the Tulier Glacier, in honor of Luis "Wolf" Tulier, the Duke of Waesche.
