New Antarctic island discovered

Recommended Posts


"A scientific expedition off the coast of Antarctica earlier this month spotted an island that appears on no maps — a finding that demonstrates how quickly the continent is changing as a result of climate change.

"“I think I see rocks,” shouted an officer aboard the RV Nathaniel B. Palmer as the ship passed through Pine Island Bay, Antarctica. After consulting their charts, the crew realized they were looking at a brand-new island.

"There was a commotion as everyone onboard rushed to see the rocky, ice-covered outcrop and suggest potential names. But the hubbub quickly gave way to excitement about the scientific implications of the find, says Julia Wellner, a marine geologist at the University of Houston in Texas."

"The island has been named Sif after the Norse goddess of fertility and family"
