A recently released satellite image atlas of Antarctica is the first in an 11-chapter volume, Satellite Image Atlas of Glaciers of the World, being produced by the U.S. Geological Survey. Each chapter or subchapter is authored by one or more of the 50 scientists from 30 countries who have collaborated on the atlas project. Editors of the volume are two USGS geologists, Richard S. Williams, Jr., and Jane G. Ferrigno. Using Landsat images, acquired during the 1970s, USGS and cooperating scientists are establishing a global benchmark of the areal extent of the world's glaciers.
