Coastal-change and glaciological map of the Saunders Coast area, Antarctica: 1972–97

  • Jane G. Ferrigno (a1), Richard S. Williams (a2) and Kevin M. Foley (a1)

Abstract

Satellite images from 1972 to 1997 have been used to prepare a map showing glaciological features of the Saunders Coast area, Antarctica. Analysis of the imagery shows a trend toward ice-front retreat that may be a result of changing environmental conditions.
