P.S. By the way, according to Frank Carsey, the director of the JPL Lake Vostok drilling project who's now been in touch with us, your marked up radar image of the Lake is in error: the image is NOT from NASA, but the Canadian Space Agency (specifically, from RADARSAT); and you've got the Russian Vostok Station at the wrong end of the Lake (it should be on the left)! :)
Hmmm, I had thought the map was taken from the nearly identical maps:
NASA GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER
Vostok High Resolution: LZW compressed TIF (5 M)
As to the precise location of Vostok Station not sure, those graphic references, circles, arrows etc., came to me in email.
Upon search I find:
Latitude and longitude for Vostok Station.
Vostok, Russia (VOS)
Latitude/Longitude: 78°27'51"S 106°51'57"E
Altitude: 3500 m (11484 ft) above sea level
Average Annual Temperature: -55°C (-67°F)
[Interesting photos here]
In either case having hard time MYSELF INDEPENDENTLY generating a specific map-atlas from above data as detailed searchable Antarctic-Vostok atlas-maps hard to find online thus far, and such resources either controlled by NASA, Russia or CIA.
Also much confused by several versions of Lake Vostok press releases attributed to JPL. More or less assuming a hawk-eye view with little commentary and theory on all this--hoping the dust will settle.
Glad you are taking up the investigation; probably will generate wider input than I am able to get with my reach.
Stay in touch,
This information seems to indicate that Russia's Vostok Station and the alleged anomaly coincide. Interesting! Kent
