13 Februari 1947, Antarctica vegetation seen by Byrd
This means that there is vegetation on Antarctic something that is still denied.
Byrd's expedition discovered two large bays, separated from the open sea by great ice barriers. The bays border a 2000-meter-high plateau, which probably extends to the South Pole. There was also an oasis, with green-fringed water, possibly related to hot springs.
30 July 1973, Antarctica, ice desert with enigmatic oasis
Still today not much is published about the Antarctic oases.
A biologist from the University of South Dakota collects water samples containing antarctic protozoa in a pool oasis located in the middle of the pack ice.
