Antarctica -- What's under the ice?

Frogs and Frozen Frogs have been the topics for the past couple of days.

But it is very unlikely that there are many (if any) frogs, even of the frozen kind, on Antarctica.

Why? Because even though they would do well while frozen, there doesn't seem to be much, if any, of a thaw cycle in Antarctica.

I guess that is why the 'frozen frogs' tend to hang out (or hop around -- har de har) in the Arctic and far northern regions of the world.

But, what does go on in Antarctica?

What is under all that ice?

Or is it just ice?

Well, you probably know the answer to those questions in that, yes, there is something under the ice and, no, it is is not just ice.

So, what exactly is under the ice?

Recent studies have been undertaken which are now revealing information about the terrain under the ice.
