This poster will describe the recent International Expedition to study the "Southern Ice Field", located in Chile and Argentina at approximately 50 deg. S. This ice field is the one of the largest bodies of ice in the world outside the polar regions, yet it is largely unstudied so far. It has more than 60 outlet glaciers and several hundred minor glaciers that drain the ice to the Pacific Ocean and to the large eastern piedmont lakes.
