Locating the Research Site

Dr. Cimino works at Palmer Station in Antarctica. Palmer Station is located along the Western Antarctic Peninsula. The maps below are of the world (left) and Antarctica (right). Antarctica is located on the bottom of the globe, so it is often distorted or completely left off maps. Click the seven plus signs to learn about the different locations and familiarize yourself with different map projections. Hover your mouse over the image that pops up for extra information. Locate Palmer Station on both maps to familiarize yourself with different methods of mapping the same location on the planet.
