On Mars and on Earth these are called Yardangs

Very strange features created by wind erosion. But in this case it could be some manmade features helping to make the yardangs. Cool find, I have found many like this on Mars too! Freaked me out at first glance till you understand that different weather patterns create this effect with wind blowing in different directions.


well apparently yardangs aren't created in snow, and don't form in the presence of much water, thus they are commonly found in deserts.

so, this just means that those creations aren't snow yardangs, perhaps they are rock yardangs with snow on top of them? possibly.

this whole yardang deal gives me all kinds of ideas about "mounds" and flat topped pyramids...and the fact that they are naturally made by the wind/air..hmm

i think it's safe to posit that since air is making these deposits of sediments, that an "aeolian" vortex must be what makes them. interesting.

I assure you Antarctica is a desert. This is a eloian process and yardang may not be the most correct definition as this is with ice (I do not claim to be a geologist). This is ice and hard enough ice can act like several types rock.

It is the Sarie Marais IV Base operated by South Africa.


Brings to mind the Jamaican bobsled team.

Looks like more antenna arrays to me, something like HAARP but no where near the same level of power. There is also a mast antenna between the labs/housing and the line of large antenna, plus a few additional out buildings.

What I would be more concerned with are all those blacked out areas. In some that can be seen as actually shadow, they have a blue tinge from the snow reflecting light back. But some of those places are totally blacked out. WTF is going on in there?

Cheers - Dave

Thanks for the clarifications guys, I figured they were research pods, but then I thought that maybe they were researching those strange formations. Crazy planet we live on.

You can do a screenshot from your iPad, in any App/process by pressing both the bottom and top power button at the same time - the screen will flash white and you'll hear a camera shutter. Pic will be saved in full res in your photos App.

You're welcome

OP, if you press and hold the main button on your iPad, and then press the power-on button at the same time, your IPad will capture your screen as a photo. No need to take a photo of your iPad!

Looking at that on google earth.
Looks like consistent tracks in the one area, like snow mobiles or something.

ohhhhhhohhh I KNOW WHAT IT IS!

That is what happens when a submarine punches up through the ice... Maybe they were doing a ice punching drill. and that is why they are all in row, to test for accuracy when surfacing.

Interesting post. I definitely see lots of tracks in the snow. According to Wiki, the first 3 Sanae bases were buried and crushed by snow and ice.

I would rather not have to download the program in order to get a good look. If you would be kind enough to post a screencap, I would greatly appreciate it...

If you put the coordinates into google, then select maps, that will get you there too.
