Do you know what is hiding miles beneath the icy surface in Antarctica? Scientists have finally managed to visualize a landscape that is hiding under an ice sheet.
Scientist used a ground-penetrating radar in last two years to create most detailed images of a Antarctica landscape that is hiding beneath the ice. Images that are result of surface scanning revealed a landscape with a number of a roughly peaks that are up to 2600 meters tall.
This project was called Gamburtsev Province Project and it is a part of the International Polar Year science program. The study was lead by a geophysicist Robin Bell of Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
