Somigliana Glacier (67°0′S 67°9′W) is a glacier flowing north to Langmuir Cove on the north part of Arrowsmith Peninsula in Graham Land. Mapped by Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) from surveys and air photos, 1956-59. Named by United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) for Carlo Somigliana, Italian mathematician and physicist who originated a viscous theory of glacier flow, in 1921.
