Scylla Glacier Satellite Image Map 1:100000Entry ID: scylla_sat
Abstract: Satellite image map of Scylla Glacier, Mac. Robertson Land, Antarctica. This map was produced for the Australian Antarctic Division by AUSLIG (now Geoscience Australia) Commercial, in Australia, in 1992. The map is at a scale of 1:100000, and was produced from Landsat TM and Landsat MSS scenes (WRS 139-110, 131-110, 129-110). It is projected on a Transverse Mercator projection, and shows glaciers/ice shelves and station/bases, and gives some historical text information. The map has both geographical and UTM co-ordinates.
