Living vesicomyid clams 100 kilometers from the former edge of the Larsen B Ice Shelf as initially seen in 2005 (top), and images of what may be the same clam bed now dead in 2007.  Although the image quality is poor, the trails in the 2005 image are characteristic of those made by living vesicomyids.  Upper image is from Domack et al. EOS Transactions, American Geophysical Union 86, 269-276 (2005).  Lower image is from Niemann et al. (2009)
