Caption: Earth from space. Cloudless satellite image of the Earth, centred on Antarctica, the continent which is located at the south pole. The colours of the ice and land approximate to natural tones, whilst blue colour-codes represent ocean topography. Over 95% of Antarctica's surface is covered with ice that makes up about 90% of the world's total supply of fresh water. This image was compiled from data acquired by NOAA weather satellites over eleven ten-day periods at an altitude of 833 kilometres to give a resolution of 1 kilometre.
