The AGAP project uses airborne geophysics to image through the ice in the interior of East Antarctica. Two teams of international scientists from six nations are gathering information that will help in determining the size and age of the largest remaining ice sheet, and help image the large alp sized mountain range hidden beneath the ice. The mountains hold information on the early history of the Earth, their role in the formation and ongoing stability of the East Antarctic ice sheet, and their connection to the area's subglacial lakes.
