Size: 56" x 40" Wall Map
This spectacular satellite image map of Antarctica shows intricate detail of the continent, its mountains, glaciers, ice sheets and islands.
Research stations are marked and islands and regions labelled. Longitude and lattitude lines are subtly marked in light-grey. Insert maps include a "thermal infared mosaic" showing the colder and warmer regions of the continent in blue and red, a geographical location diagram that shows Antarctica in relation to other continents and an "image coverage diagram" with a breakdown of satellite coverage areas.
The data for this map was supplied from NOAA satellites, the image mosaic was assembled by the NRSC, and the map was prepared and printed by USGS. The images were acquired by Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometers (AVHRR) on the NOAA 6,7,9 and 10 satellites. Thirty-five sections and twenty-six separate screens were needed to assemble a mosaic as cloud-free as possible.
