Mawson Escarpment North Satellite Image Map 1:100000Entry ID: mawson_north_sat
Abstract: Satellite image map of the northern end of the Mawson Escarpment, Antarctica. This map was produced for the Australian Antarctic Division by AUSLIG (now Geoscience Australia) Commercial, in Australia, in 1995. The map is at a scale of 1:100000, and was produced from Landsat TM scenes (WRS 128-111, 127-112). It is projected on a Transverse Mercator projection, and shows glaciers/ice shelves and gives some historical text information. The map has both geographical and UTM co-ordinates.
