Hiding beneath the massive Antarctic Ice Sheet lies one of the densest clusters of volcanoes in the world. In total, scientists have identified 91 new volcanoes, adding to the 47 already known to exist in the region.

A group of geologists at the University of Edinburgh has identified 91 new volcanoes concentrated along the West Antarctic Rift System axis. This research has recently been published in a special series of the Geological Society of London.
