What soil does Antarctica have?

The Antarctic continent is classified as a desert because of its low humidity -- about five percent. The continent is covered -- 98% -- by an ice sheet, and the bedrock under the ice sheet is composed of the rocks and rock formations found on every other continent. Since only the beaches are not covered, the 'soil' on the continent is sea-washed stone rubble, like you would find on any beach.

Why does the earth have ice caps?

In the latest ice age almost the whole world was covered with ice (almost as far as the equator), most of that ice has now retreated as the earth's temperature increased but what is left is still at the coldest parts of the world i.e. the poles. The ice was created from water freezing at the low temperatures and then covered with snow.

Arctica was an ancient continent which formed approximately 2.5 billion years ago in the Neoarchean era.
