According to the recent news, a new picture would be added to the Atlas of the world
One region that was never revealed and touched, would finally be added to the world map. The region will hold untouched mountains, trenches, canyons and lakes. The location of this region is somewhere beneath the ice sheet of Antarctica, towards the south pole region of the Earth.
The report consists of the physical features about this mysterious world, that includes the study of mountains at the size of the Alps. It is indeed a great achievement by the researchers and will lead to further studies of this mystical piece of land.
One of the members of the research team – Peter Fretwell said; “It is very important to know how much ice there is and what the topography of the bed looks like, as this is one of the main controls on how quickly ice sheets melt with climate change”.
Peter also explains in his findings that there could be many such hidden regions that are now revealing its secrets due to the atmospheric changes and ride in the greenhouse gases. The melting of ice in such areas is one such example of climate changes.
