Scientists Discover Volcanos Under Antarctic Ice Sheet

: 08/13/2017 - 16:03

Scientists have discovered 91 volcanoes - 2 kilometres underneath the Antarctic ice sheet.

It's the largest volcanic region on Earth, with the tallest standing at nearly 4,000 metres.

The researchers from the University of Edinburgh are warning that if one were to erupt it could destablise the ice sheets.

They're now working to determine how active the volcanoes are.
