Digital Scans of the Mountains Under Ice Sheet.

Antarctica’s mountain ranges have been digitally scanned! If the ice were to melt away, they would look very similar to the Cascade Range in the USA, home of Mnt. Rainer.

See all the photos here.

    Those maps are amazing. Antarctica has always been a fantastical place to me, as it remains so hidden. I saw photos of mountain peaks coming through the ice in Queen Maud Land years ago, which looked other-worldly to me. These graphs show just how weird the land is, once you get beneath the ice.
