Antarctica Mosaic

Antarctica Mosaic

This spectacular image is the RADARSAT-2 pole to coast Antarctic mosaic created by MDA in cooperation with the Canadian Space Agency as part of the International Polar Year. Captured in 2008, this mosaic is a unique compilation of over 3,150 RADARSAT-2 images that comprise a single pole-to-coast map covering all of Antarctica. The mosaic provides a detailed representation of the Antarctic ice sheet showing subtle topographic features from the South Pole to the Antarctic coast line. The images were captured in Wide (150 km x 150 km at 30 m in HH+HV polarizations) and Extended High (75 km x 75 km at 25 m in HH polarization) modes. The image provides insight into the current condition of the Antarctic ice sheets, the nature and rate of change in the Antarctic environment and provides a useful map to support operations needing detailed information to understand the surface and sub-surface features of the Antarctic ice.
