Dry Valleys of McMurdo satellite image
Culled from still classified material, this satellite image of the McMurdo Dry Valleys was released with the cooperation of the National Science Foundation, the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, and the DCI Environmental Center. These images, gathered in 1975 and 1980, will help further research and understanding of Antarctic features, such as hydrology. The larger image shows the McMurdo Dry Valleys in the Transantarctic mountains; the inset shows the eastern end of the Lake Bonney area.
