Antarctica & Tierra Del Fuego ITMB Map

Antarctica & Tierra Del Fuego ITMB Map has Antarctica on one side and Tierra del Fuego on the other, since most ships heading across the Drake Passage originate in Ushuaia, Argentina.

This edition is also unique in that it portrays the loss of permanent ice since the last edition.

Global warming is melting the ice cover quite quickly, both visibly above the surface and by warmer ocean currents melting the underside of ice shelves. This should cause a carving off of a huge piece of ice in the near future that is about the size of Prince Edward Island in Canada.
