Is there a polar region starting with ice?
The Arctic and antarctic are the two polar ice regions. Iceland does exist, but is not considered to be a polar region.
The southern polar region is about 30 degrees F colder than the northern polar region, because the Antarctic continent is considered one of earth's finest 'heat sinks', absorbing excess heat in the extreme cold environment. The northern polar region is covered with sea ice only: there is no land there.
A polar ice cap is a high latitude region of a planet or natural satellite that is covered in ice This causes the term 'polar ice cap' to be somewhat of a misnomer, as the term ice cap itself is applied with greater scrutiny as such bodies must be found over land, and possess a surface area of less than 50,000 km²: larger bodies are referred to as ice sheets. The composition of the ice…
The South Pole sits on Antarctica, a continent covered -- 98% of it -- with an ice sheet. The ice sheet stores about 90% of the Earth's store of ice. You'll find the North Pole on frozen sea water floating in the Arctic Ocean. The continent and the ice sheet contribute to the southern polar region being about 30 degrees F colder than the northern polar region.
The Southern Polar region on Earth is anchored by a continent -- Antarctica, which contains about 90% of the Earth's store of ice. The Northern Polar region is simply covered with sea ice, which is not as cold as the continental ice sheet that covers 98% of Antarctica. Antarctica covers about 10% of the Earth's surface. Antarctica is about 30 degrees F colder than the Arctic.
A polar ice cap is the layer of ice at the polar regions of a planet. On earth this is at the North and South poles. An ice cap does not have to be on land, so our Arctic ice cap floats on water, and our Antarctic ice cap covers the continent of Antarctica. The Greenland ice cap is not a polar ice cap.
The polar bear is found in the Arctic Circle and the nearby islands. They can be found in good numbers in Alaska, Norway, Denmark, Russia and Canada. There are smaller populations in the surrounding regions near the Arctic pole. They prefer the Cold Icy areas of the Arctic and thrive in areas where the human intervention is minimal. They are found in good numbers in areas where their primary prey, the Seals mate and nest.
an arctic region is a region full of ice and snow. it is surrounded by other countries. the arctic region is part of Canada. polar bears live there. the arctic ocean is part of the arctic region. it is freezing in the arctic region. they evacuated all of the penguins from the arctic region to Antarctica because polar bears eat penguins and eventually they will become extinct. sea ice covers part of the arctic ocean…
