Antarctica - August 16th, 2009

This large area of rumpled, cracking ice is located on the shores of Queen Maud Land (Dronning Maud Land), part of the Norwegian Antarctic Claim.

It has a land area of approximately 2.5 million square kilometers (one million sq mi), mostly covered by the Antarctic ice sheet lying between the British claim and the Australian claim.

In this part of Queen Maud Land, many icebergs can be seen breaking off the Antarctic Ice Sheet and floating into the Antarctic Ocean.
