Ramorino Glacier (78°24′S 85°38′W / 78.400°S 85.633°W / -78.400; -85.633Coordinates: 78°24′S 85°38′W / 78.400°S 85.633°W / -78.400; -85.633) is the 4.5 nautical miles (8.3 km; 5.2 mi) long glacier situated northwest of upper Crosswell Glacier and southeast of Cervellati Glacier on the east slope of Sentinel Range in the Ellsworth Mountains, Antarctica. It flows northeastwards between Epperly Ridge and Shinn Ridge, and enters Crosswell Glacier northwest of Mount Segers. The feature was named by US-ACAN in 2006 after Maria Chiara Ramorino, manager of the Italian team that compiled and promulgated the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica, 1998–2006.
