Fimbul Ice Shelf1431 viewsThe Fimbul Ice Shelf is punctuated by numerous ice rises that occur where isolated rocky islands are covered by ice. Ice shelves may be particularly sensitive to changes in climate, and recently ice shelves in the Antarctic Peninsula have experienced rapid retreat

Allan Hills1319 viewsThe Allan Hills are located on the flanks of the TransAntarctic Mountains. Ice upwells onto the hills where combinations of winds and solar insolation cause the ice to quickly ablate. Meteorites that once fell over a large region of East Antarctica have been carried by glacier motion into this small locality.
