Huge Trench Discovered Beneath Antarctic Ice
February 2, 2014 | Newcastle University
Researchers have discovered a feature larger than the Grand Canyon beneath the ice of Antarctica. They describe it as: "a massive subglacial valley up to 3 kilometres deep, more than 300 kilometres long and up to 25 kilometres across. In places, the floor of this valley is more than 2000 metres below sea level." Quoted from the Newcastle University press release.
