Scientists Create a Detailed Map of the Antarctic Landscape Below the Ice and Snow.

For the project, researchers collected three sets of data: surface elevation, ice thickness and bedrock topography. The program was created using work from the British Antarctic Survey, from which researchers used decades of measurements along with information from ICESat and information gathered by the Operation IceBridge, an airborne project used to collect data about the area. The result is a highly detailed image of Antarctica’s topography and to make it even more interesting, the NASA webpage for the project allows viewers to compare the old and new maps and the Antarctic both covered in and devoid of ice.
