The Transantarctic Mountains

This view southward from McMurdo Sound and Ross Island shows the Ross Ice Shelf on the left separated from the East Antarctic plateau by the Transantarctic Mountains, the largest mountain range in Antarctica. The dark areas in the foreground right are the McMurdo Dry Valleys which are ice free due to the extremely low precipitation.
