    DescriptionFly over Cape Roberts onto the continent, through the dry valleys, over mountain ranges, and glaciers, then around Koettlize Glacier onto the Ross Ice Shelf, over the Black and White Islands, McMurdo Research Station, Ross Island, and Mount Erebus. EROS created the fly-through by merging Landsat ETM+ sensor’s natural color bands 3, 2, and 1 (red, green, blue) with the panchromatic band 8 for a pan-sharpened view at 15-m spatial resolution.

    DescriptionStart high above the Washington Monument, then fly from east to west over the United States, and the Pacific Ocean to Antarctica. Zoom in on Wright and Taylor Dry Valleys, over Hut Point Peninsula and McMurdo Research Station on Ross Island, then continue to explore more of the dry valleys. EROS created this fly-through with late 1990's data from Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper sensor bands 2, 4, and 7 (green, near-infrared, mid-infrared) at 30-m spatial resolution.

    Author: National Geographic
    DescriptionScientists are studying environmental changes that have resulted in a vast decline in numbers of krill—tiny, shrimplike creatures that are the backbone of the food chain in the surrounding seas. As Antarctica becomes less isolated, the challenge will be to protect these ecosystems and the seals, penguins, and whales that rely on them.
