    Antarctic oases are substantial ice-free areas separated from the ice sheet by a distinct ablation zone and which are kept free from snow by ablation due to low albedo and positive radiation balance. These enclaves, where temperatures rise above freezing, may possess running water, a developed soil, and establishment of plant communities. -P.J.Jarvis
