Oblique view - pictorial landscape form map. Covers Ross Island, McMurdo Sound and parts of the Royal Society range onto the polar plateau.
The map margin includes several paintings showing areas of scenic, geologic, and historic interest.
The map's backside has text, along with maps and sketches, which provide an introductory overview of Antarctica and the McMurdo area - covering, human history, geologic and climatic settings, plant, animal, fish and birdlife - as well as the scientific research being carried out on the frozen continent.
Also included are point of interest descriptions on Ross Island and in the McMurdo Station - Scott Base complexes, along with a list of references and background literature.
This is an excellent wall chart for those fascinated by the polar regions and their historic explorations, as well as for geography and earth-science classrooms.
