You will recall that much of the interior is relatively inhospitable because of surface water. The continent of Antarctica, 98% of which is covered with snow and ice, covers more than 13 million sq. km – an area bigger than the United States!. In het noordelijk poolgebied schuift de ijsgrens steeds verder naar het noorden op; verwacht wordt het noordelijk poolgebied waarschijnlijk al voor 2050 's zomers geheel ijsvrij zal zijn. Interestingly, the thick layer of fat in its body, which is known to be as thick as 4.3 inches, also helps this species survive the freezing conditions here.

Within this zone the colder and denser north-flowing antarctic surface waters sink beneath warmer and saltier subantarctic waters; the difference in temperature and chemical content of the water on the two sides of the zone is reflected in noticeable differences in air temperature and in marine life.

Some such destinations include Franz Joseph Land, Iceland, and the Northwest Passage in the Arctic, and the Falklands, South Shetland Islands, Ross Sea, and South Georgia in Antarctica. What do we know about natural protection from the Sun? EMPEROR PENGUIN -Largest of the living penguins at around 110cm (4 feet) and 31-36kg (70-80 lb.). -They are very strong, capable of breaking a man's arm with a single blow from their flipper. -In March, the beginning of the Antarctic fall, the Emperor Penguins come in from the sea, shortly after the sea ice has formed. -They waddle over the ice to last year's breeding ground -- the rookery -- where they mate. -The female lays her single egg (weighing about one pound) in May or June (the middle of the bitter Antarctic winter). -She does not build a nest, but lays the egg on her feet as she stands on the ice. -Then she passes the egg to the male, not allowing it to crack or freeze and so kill the embryo. -The female then leaves the rookery, walking back across the ice to the sea, so she can get food and winter at sea. -The egg is then incubated by the male on his feet tucked under a flap of skin for the next two months. -The male Emperor penguin is the only warm-blooded animal to spend the bitter winter on the Antarctic continent. -They huddle together throughout the coldest months, in temperatures that fall below -40 degrees C., through blizzards and hundred-mile-an-hour winds. -They stand, shoulders touching, sharing their body heat, changing positions in the group from time to time, so that no one penguin stays out at the colder, exposed edge of the group for too long. -When the eggs are about to hatch, the mother returns and the father carefully passes the egg back to the mother penguin. -Now it is the father's turn to walk to the sea for food; he has not eaten for about three months and has been living off reserve fat, losing about 40% of his body weight. -When the chick hatches out of the egg, it sits where it is, on its mother's feet; she feeds it regurgitated food that she brings up from her stomach. -When the male penguin returns the mother and father penguin take turns feeding the chick, which quickly grows larger and stronger. -Very quickly all the chicks are grouped together where they are guarded by other adult penguins so that the mothers and fathers can go looking for food. -In about five months, the young penguins grow adult feathers then all the penguins leave the rookery and walk to the sea. -It is time for the young penguins to practice swimming, diving and catching fish. -It is at this time that the leopard seals are lying in wait in the water; only one out of four chicks lives to become an adult. -The swimming penguins climb on ice floes and drift up to more northern waters where they swim and fish and fatten up. -In March they will swim back to Antarctica, walk to the rookery, and the whole cycle begins again.

At the poles themselves, the seasonal changes are even more pronounced: 24 hours of daylight occur for several months over summer, while there is complete darkness for several months during winter. In the Arctic, average temperatures have risen almost twice as fast as in the rest of the world and climate changes are particularly intense. In fact, ozone levels drop so low in spring in the Southern Hemisphere that scientists have observed what they call a "hole" in the ozone layer.

Privacy Statement and Disclaimer Notice No thanks, I don't need to stay current on what works in education! Since the late 1980s scientists have researched seasonal ozone depletion, or "holes," in the stratosphere above Antarctica, which allows harmful levels of ultraviolet radiation from the sun to reach the earth (see ozone layer ), They have also queried whether the rising incidence of iceberg calving in W Antarctica and increased snowfall in E Antarctica are related to global warming and climate change; satellite observations have indicated that glaciers in W Antarctica are thinning and their melting is accelerating.
