Caption: Riiser-Larsen ice shelf. ERS-1 radar image showing part of the Riiser-Larsen ice shelf in Antarctica. The ice shelf is seen as white, with large snow drifts showing areas of stress in the ice. The dark blue water off the coast is covered with fragmented sea ice. This image was made in October (southern spring), so the ice shelf is retreating due to the annual partial thaw. The data for this image were gathered by the European ERS-1 radar mapping satellite.
