A team of scientists led by Professor Charles Towne of the University of Canterbury has landed on the continent of Africa.
The team, led by Dr Stephen Geddes, has spent the past two years working on the mission, which is part of the International Polar Year.
“The Antarctic Peninsula has been a special part of our Earth’s history.
We are very fortunate to have such an important part to study,” Dr Towne said.
“It is an incredible achievement.”
The team used the Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) instrument on the Landsat 8 satellite to observe the terrain on the southern tip of the continent and the area around the Antarctic Peninsula.
The LORRI instrument has previously been used to study the Antarctic continent from space.
Dr Town e spoke with The New York Times about the LORRIs mission and how it has changed the way we understand Antarctica.
Why is it important?
One of the most exciting things about the new mission is that we are the first to go directly into the heart of the African continent.
The idea of going into the middle of Africa is really exciting because you get to see some of the unique geology, the unique vegetation and the unique climate.
The area we are looking at is the heartland of Africa, so you see what the vegetation looks like, you see how much water there is, you can look at the soil and see how many minerals and how many plants there are.
It’s the kind of terrain that really makes you wonder about what’s going on in Africa.
What can we learn?
We have been able to observe some very exciting things in this new region.
For example, we’ve been able in recent years to get a really good picture of the geologic history of the region, which really shows the potential for new discoveries.
One of those discoveries was the discovery of a large number of new deposits of fossilised shells that date back thousands of years.
“That has allowed us to see how the sea level has changed over time in this part of Africa and we can then work out how this has changed with the ice sheet and the ice caps,” Dr Gedd, said.
The researchers have also been able at times to find small fragments of fossilized fossils in these deposits, but this has been the most interesting discovery.
What’s it like to be on the ground?
It’s quite a lot of fun to be there.
We have all been very excited to go into this area.
We had to go out there and have some very high-pressure conditions because the ground was quite salty.
It was quite cold at one point.
We’re really happy about being there.
The terrain is very interesting because you see this very flat, high-gloss landscape.
“There are very clear, pristine, deep valleys, but then there are also a number of small, rocky outcrops,” Dr Townsend said.
We see these in the northern section of the Antarctic.
“One of the main things we’re seeing is the incredible diversity of vegetation and minerals in the terrain.
We’ve seen a lot more animal life in the area than we would have expected.
The scientists are hoping to get to the southern part of Antarctica by 2019. “
When you’re doing field work, you get a real sense of what it’s like to live in the Antarctic.”
The scientists are hoping to get to the southern part of Antarctica by 2019.
They hope to have a better idea of what’s happening there and what the climate is like there.
What else can we expect to see?
The scientists have also found evidence of an ancient, active volcano in the southern area of the Africa.
They’ve also been studying other volcanic regions in Africa including a volcano on Mauritius.
The scientists also hope to get some images of the landforms of the Indian Ocean, which could shed light on ancient volcanic activity in that area.
“We’ve got a really interesting window into the past and how volcanoes have changed over the past 700,000 years,” Dr Towns said.
If the mission is successful, it will be the first time that scientists have actually gone into the deep African land and investigated the geology there.
“I think the exciting thing is that there’s a lot we don’t know yet,” Dr Cottrell said.
What other projects could you have on the way?
The LEO team has already made several discoveries in Antarctica.
The first one was the location of a new type of volcano on the island of Mauritius, which has a history of volcanic activity.
They’re also investigating a new site called the Cape Mecanique, which they believe is the site of a volcano that erupted about 100,000 to 150,000 year ago.
The next big project is an attempt to find evidence of a huge extinct volcano in Mauritius called Nelat, which
