Brøgger Glacier (54°32′S 36°26′W / 54.533°S 36.433°W / -54.533; -36.433) is a glacier 7 nautical miles (13 km) long, flowing west into the southern part of Undine South Harbour on the south coast of South Georgia. The name appears on a chart by Professor Olaf Holtedahl, Norwegian geologist who investigated South Georgia in 1928, and is probably for Professor Waldemar Brøgger, a Norwegian geologist and mineralogist, and member of the Norwegian Parliament, 1900–09.
