Antarctica DEM and AVHRR Stereo Images (USGS)

Center for Geophysical Studies of Ice and Climate CEGSIC, located in the Physics Department at St. Olaf College, is a research project focused toward understanding the response of the world's ice masses to global change. More specifically, CEGSIC
utilizes the tools of ice-penetrating radar and satellite imagery to study the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets in various parts of the world.

Discovery Channel Online Watch the size of the ice in Antarctica increase and decrease as the month of the year changes.
