New Mosaic of Antarctica Surface
« on: August 20, 2014, 10:26:46 PM »
A newly released image of Antarctica offers the most complete, detailed view of the continent since 1997. The map is a mosaic of more than 3,150 individual, high-resolution readings, taken in the Southern Hemisphere's autumn of 2008, and tiled together into a coast-to-coast view of the entire continent with its coastal waters (see the following links, and the attached figure of the Ronne Ice Shelf):
