This ice field is the world's third largest reserve of fresh water. Despite most of the innumerable glaciers worldwide retreating as a result of global warming and climate change, one of the few unusual glaciers that maintains in a state of equilibrium is the Perito Moreno Glacier because it continues to accumulate mass at a rate similar to that of its loss.
Some years later, Rudolph Hauthal, attached to the Argentine Boundary Commission, met the glacier, and decided to name it "Bismarck" in honor of Prussian Chancellor.
In , the Boundary Treaty between Chile and Argentina was signed, which defined the boundaries of both countries in the Andes mountain range up to the 52nd parallel.
The glacier is east of the Andes Mountains and empties into Lake Argentino , which also is under Argentine sovereignty. Before the treaty, the area was in dispute between both countries.

Francisco Pascasio Moreno. With no outlet, the water level on the Brazo Rico side of the lake can rise by as much as 30 meters above the level of the main body of Argentino Lake.
Intermittently, the pressure produced by the height of the dammed water breaks through the ice barrier causing a spectacular rupture, sending a massive outpouring of water from the Brazo Rico section to the main body of Lake Argentino and the Santa Cruz river.
As the water exits Brazo Rico, the scored shoreline is exposed, showing evidence of the height of the water build-up.
This dam—ice-bridge—rupture cycle recurs naturally between once a year to less than once every decade.
The glacier advances between June and December and recedes between December and April. The formation of an ice barrier is a complex process, since there is a feedback mechanism between the glacier and the lake, which affects the oscillations of the position of the glacial front in a fairly stable way.
Different behaviors have been observed during the filling and in the processes of discharge of the water, which have been classified into three types: sudden, progressive and minor burst.
The ruptures do not have a specific periodicity. Traditionally it was estimated one every three or four years, but there have been times where they happened in shorter periods and others in which it didn't occur for many years, causing fears that the phenomenon might possibly have stopped occurring.
