Researchers may have finally found how Antarctica’s Gamburtsev Subglacial Mountains were formed, a conundrum that has plagued scientists since they were first discovered in 1958.
Scientists have used ice-penetrating radar to create the first high- resolution topographic map of one of the last uncharted regions of Earth, the Aurora Subglacial Basin, an immense ice-buried lowland in East Antarctica larger than Texas.
