Map-making has been a part of every BSES expedition from the Society's beginnings in 1932, partly as a training exercise but partly also to provide generally and scientifically useful surveys of remote areas. The series of maps of many types of glaciers in Iceland has, over a period of nearly 30 years, fulfilled both these objectives. This paper summarizes information on the location of the glaciers and maps, on the survey procedures and results, and on the subsequent history of some of the glaciers concerned which have proved to advance by surging. Such information on changing features such as glaciers is potentially useful in hydrological surveys for electric power generation.
