Caption: Antarctica. Satellite image of the Earth, set against a background of stars, centred on the Antarctic. The South Pole is at centre. Clouds (white) are seen in the atmosphere. On the surface, seas and oceans (blue) surround the land, with ice (white) covering Antarctica. Land cover further north ranges from vegetation (green) to arid areas (brown). Antarctica is surrounded by the Southern Ocean. The tips of Africa (lower right) and South America (upper right), all of New Zealand (centre left) and the southern parts of Australia (lower left) are also seen. This image, from 2001, combines data from a variety of satellite sensors (AVHRR, SeaWiFS, MODIS) at a range of wavelengths.
