Hugh Bollinger / Friday, August 19, 2011 / Categories: Uncategorized Antarctica fully mapped Researchers at UC Irvine, NASA, and JPL have now combined satellite and other remote sensing data of Antarctica to produce the first complete map of the ice bound continent. [caption id="attachment_6714" align="aligncenter" width="480" caption="Complete Antarctica map credit: JPL/NASA"][/caption] The new mapping data collected between 2007-2009, didn't determine if Antarctic glaciers are melting in response to climate change.
