Antarctica. Artwork showing the continent of Antarctica in a spherical projection centred on the South Pole, where lines of latitude and longitude converge. Antarctica is a continent occupying much of the Earth's southern polar regions. It is encased in perpetual snow and ice, and is the coldest place on Earth. Ice shelves extend out from the shores of Antarctica, such as the Ross Ice Shelf (upper centre). Other features include the Antarctic Peninsula (lower left) and the Transantarctic Mountains range (upper centre). Parts of Australia and New Zealand (top left) and South America (bottom right) are also visible.
