I found this and thought it would be interesting to investigate as more information becomes available.

"Antarctica, the coldest place on Earth, is also home to volcanic fire. Looming above the frigid sea is Mount Erebus, a volcano that has erupted frequently over the last 200 years."

"Presently we are extending the Autonomous Sciencecraft Experiment by setting up the software to autonomously monitor over 50 known volcano sites for activity."

Mount Erebus is certainly worth keeping an eye on. I would imagine a active volcano could increase the melting of the polar Ice caps?

Also this spacecraft's instrument "The Space Technology 6 Autonomous Sciencecraft Experiment" might observe Yellowstone at some point, and provide some new information about that?

Antarctica has always fascinated me. A volcano in antarctica kinda seems like an oxymoron, but i wonder what kind info and material it will turn up. I think it would be a great spot for an outpost.

Yes, there are a number of volcanos in Antarctica and Erebus is the most famous. The Antarctic plate is spreading very slowly, so there's not a whole bunch of activity there.

Antarctica is the South Pole....

And no, Mammoths never ranged down there. They were a North American species. They've found some good dinosaur fossils, however.
