Arneb Glacier (72°25′S 170°2′E) is a glacier 3 nautical miles (6 km) long and 2 nautical miles (4 km) wide, situated in a cliff-walled bay between Hallett Peninsula and Redcastle Ridge and flowing northwest into Edisto Inlet as a floating ice tongue. It was named by the New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition, 1957–58, for the USS Arneb, which in the 1957 season carried the buildings and stores for the establishment of Hallett Station and revisited the station in subsequent seasons.
