Satellite View of Antarctica

The Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA) is the first-ever true-color high-resolution satellite view of the Antarctic continent enabling everyone to see Antarctica as it appears in real life. The primary purpose of the LIMA website is to provide materials that will allow for both students and educators to explore the continent.  The Meet Antarctica page provides an introduction to the continent; fact sheets along with high resolution images are also available for download. 

The Antarctic Mysteries page contains seventeen images (many of which are also available for high resolution download) that depict a variety of Antarctic features, from crevasses to icebergs, and provides a description of each.
