Caption: Antarctica. Infrared satellite image of the east- ern coast near the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula (also known as Graham Land), the northernmost part of the continent of Antarctica. North is at top. Snowfields (white) cover most of the land (at lower right and far left), but the dark, bare rock of a string of islands appears from lower left to top centre. Loose, broken pack ice (light blue, at left) is floating on the sea, whilst the open water of the Weddell Sea appears at upper right. The Antarctic Peninsula lies directly south of the tip of South America. Image taken by the French SPOT-1 satellite in February.
