Sørsdal Glacier is a heavily crevassed glacier on the Ingrid Christensen Coast of Princess Elizabeth Land in Antarctica, 15 nautical miles (28 km) long, flowing westward along the south side of Krok Fjord and the Vestfold Hills and terminating in a prominent glacier tongue at Prydz Bay. Discovered in February 1935 by a Norwegian expedition under Captain Klarius Mikkelsen and named for Lief Sørsdal, a Norwegian dentist and a member of the party from the whaling ship Thorshavn that landed at the northern end of the Vestfold Hills.
