The German exploration of 1937 was surprised to find a high volume of low-salinity water flowing from a wide opening in the glacial ice on the Prince Martha Coast. Miles of navigable passageways in the Antarctic interior lead to an enormous geothermally heated lake. The Germans quickly established a submarine base and fortress in Antarctica and mapped passages all through the south polar ice cap. Quickly Antarctica became a base for submarine operations against South Africa and Australia. Later in the war the German “Base 211” served as a research laboratory for top-secret projects and a redoubt from which the last vestiges of the Nazi empire could hold out.
