Alps-like Mountain Range Under E. Antarctic Ice Sheet



"...the mountains the size of the European Alps but they also have similar peaks and valleys”... “...this adds even more mystery about how the vast East Antarctic Ice Sheet formed.”

"...“if the ice sheet grew slowly then we would expect to see the mountains eroded into a plateau shape. But the presence of peaks and valleys could suggest that the ice sheet formed quickly-we just don’t know. Our big challenge now is to dive into the data to get a better understanding of what happened” millions of years ago."
