Both dealt with Ice… in their Own Ways. Means

in those Younger Years. Of Mine. Yours.?.
Weather in the Antarctic Regions is Cold to Mild,
variable to extremes.
The Southernmost Lands in and on Our World. Legends of
the Meteorological Sciences so and say:
Some of the Coldest Temps/Times, Places
on Our World. Legends originate
there. There are Two rather distinct
divided by Mountains. The Great TransAntarctic.
Thus and so;..
The Eastern Side far more extensive.
Area ly.?. Airily
Terrain, Maps… Mores.
Google Earth has provided a unique viewing Platform.
- Of A 14 Mile Long Structure
buried in Antarctic Ice.
Blurred out… a Research Facility, perhaps
- Spiders thrive, Slugs not at all.
Some Species Larger, Others Smaller.
- An Alien Life-Form of a Microbe
found in Lakes
thereabouts. Has Science interested and puzzled.
Looking for Viral Origins.
Investigations continue. Therein.
- Bacteria found could mean
More Research there too. To
have been visited. By Armies.?.
- The British noticed Germany visiting The Antarctic.
So sent an Admiral + co.
Byrd. Admiral back then. To see then.
What was going ons. There
On that Icy Pole.
Told Our World. Legends. Very Lil’. ‘Bout That.
- 13 ships carrying almost 4,000 men,
including Meteorologists, Zoologists, Physicists
and Maritime, Oceanography.
Who also… Told Lil’ as well. Well as
- Ancient Maps seem to profile the Coast.?.
Yet covered over by the Last Ice Age.?.
- Covered over too. In Different Ways.
Nuclear Bomb Testing by those…
A Land of perfect… paradox.
Warm, Green Patches, verdant patches. Arounds
though small in size. Nature
poking through. The Ice.
- The 1946/7 Byrd/Cruzen Expedition charted some
300,000 square miles of Antarctic Lands.
The chill factor…
is also not a hindrance
in the propagation, persistence
- of EarthQuakes. Antarctica is still
prone and as recently as
Dec 11. Last Year… 2018… a 7.1/7.5 Magnitude was recorded,
epicentred near Bristol Island. Deep Underground.
- Deep also these UnderWater Volcanos stir
as well. Well as
Bringing contrasts to barren Scapes. Warmer Waters.
The emissions of Lava, Volcanic Dusts and Soils
develop. Developing Pathways. For Life.
Over Times, Places attracting All from that
Maritime Chains of Life. Small and Large.
Whales swim, link these PathWays. Belows. Aboves
- Bird-Lifes so attracted too. To show
anew. To find
Shackleton’s Lost Ship.
- The Steam-Yacht. The Endurance
and it’s final, deep resting Place
is the Final Task. Tasked
- to the Dutch Research Vessel Agulhas 2
that is. That is
underways currently. An under the Ice Seek and Search
to expand Our Early Knowledge. Acknowledging those
intrepid Explorers of Yore, who dared defy Nature
to make in Our World, Legends. Legendary
- Antarctic has even more. To show. Showing
up recently a Satellite Image Anomaly too. One
that had led the concerned Sciences. More Joy. More
as well. Well as mapping Coastlines
Satellite Imagery has revealed an unknown Colony.
there is. Thereupon. The Ice Shelf.
Antarctica it seems. Seemingly
hidden from the usual observational Methods
- a 15km Shelf has over
recent Times, become Home
to a Colony. A Colony
whose numbers are increasing well
the Total Penguin Pop. Adélie Type.
By approx. 15 Million that is. That is
- These Adélie Penguins are in… no real Danger. Danger
so nomened, this Shelf Be On. There. Antarctic
This Area has natural Defences presenting a daunting,
dangerous challenge for Penguin Predators
to approach. Mainly Rocks and
Ice. Lots. Tall and Sharp Cold edges. Galores. Surrounding
much of Danger Islands entrance Ways…
hiding the View. Thereupon.
Scientists used Satellite, Drones and sophisticated
Softwares. To count. Ups these newly found
Icily. Adding Ups.
As shown Ways aboves. Antarctica
is of Interest too. To
many. Large and Small. Life.
A Land of paradox and seemingly more Mystery.
More Penguins as well. Well as
a Land that struggles to produce Life with it’s
Waters frozen, sparse Sun. Yet does. Naturally.
Alls… Need. Have a Life.
A Balanced World… includes Others. Others
in Ways. Means. We Learn, apply Knowledge too. To
Alls Our Lives.
Without Taking. All. Of Theirs.
Feel chilled enough.
Those chilling Tales.
Anomalies as well. Well as
From Alls Over. Our World.
