cousteau - caml expedition

cousteau - caml expedition:

"Huge areas of sea floor (around 3.250 km2) have been freed up by the collapse 4 years ago of the Larsen B ice shelf along the Antarctic Peninsula – leaving a blank spot on Antarctic maps and raising questions about the effect of global warming. An interesting consequence of the Larsen B collapsing: areas which were previously covered by ice shelves several hundred meters thick are now accessible to researchers"

I had no idea you could embed video into placemarks on Google Maps

More video footage from Polarstern Expedition ANT-XIII/8 and some hi-res photos
