Caption: Schirmacher Oasis. View of part of the Schirmacher Oasis, an ice-free plateau in Antarctica. The plateau is 25km long and up to 3km wide and rises to a height of 100 metres above sea level. The reason why it is largely free of ice is not known. It is found on the coast of Queen Maud Land in East Antarctica and is home to two research stations, Russia's Novolazarevskaya and India's Maitri.
