This paper is a synopsis of Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey Scientific Report No. 29. Glaciological and climatic investigations carried out in South Georgia during the International Geophysical Year are described. The budgets of the Hodges and Hamberg Glaciers for 1957–58 are given and discussed in relation to climatic factors. Temperature measurements indicate that the Hodges Glacier, and probably all ice in South Georgia below an altitude of 1,000 m., is geophysically temperate. The fluctuations of South Georgian glaciers during relatively recent times are briefly discussed.
