Massive subglacial flooding in the Antarctic created a large crater in the ice, according to a study. Scientists are studying Antarctica's underground lakes and waterways to determine where the flood waters flow and why the crater seems to be slowly inflating again. "There's a lot of mystery surrounding the continent still that we don't understand. This will be modeled in terms of the ice dynamics and the thermal impacts of this feature, and that will add to the general knowledge of the continent," said the study's co-author, glaciologist Hugh Corr.
