What Antartica Would Look Like Without Ice


This amazing map by AellaGirl shows Antartica with forests instead of the ice sheet – something that could become reality soon.

Here is a similar map from Wikipedia that shows the same thing (upside down):

Topographic map of Antarctica after removing the ice sheet and accounting for both isostatic rebound and sea level rise. Hence this map suggests what Antarctica may have looked like 35 million years ago, when the Earth was warm enough to prevent the formation of large-scale ice sheets in Antarctica.
