The Foreword describes the purpose of this manual as an aid to "Air Force intelligence and operations units with one of a series of 'keys' for the rapid and accurate reading and interpretation of aerial photographs. This particular key is intended for use as a subject key for areas inundated by continental glaciers, as a regional key for Antarctica, or as an analogous key for Greenland." A few lines about these keys: The keys in this publication emphasize diagnostic features of typical Antarctic landforms and ice -forms and consist of a photo image and an accompanying written analysis. Chapter III offers a detailed introduction to the keys, followed by sections for each category (subject) of keys: Major Ice Formations; Glaciers; Ice Tongues; Shelf Ice; Icebergs; Snow, Firn, and Glacier Ice; Sastrugi; Snowdrifts; Crevasses; Radiation; Meltwater; Moraines; Mountains; Coastlines; Flora and Fauna; and Human Occupance.
