antarctica has thick ice because it is a land mass that is freazed so it has really big ice
The thickest ice in Antarctica that has been measured -- by estimate -- at the South Pole, where it is nearly two miles thick.
Snow - not thick. But the snow that has been compacting for millions of years into glaciers....some of that reaches over 10,000 feet in thickness.
Yes, and it still is!
the thickest is mantle
The mantle is the thickest layer of the earth.
the thickest part is under a mountain range
Areas of crustal plates with mountains are the greatest in thickness.
I am the thickest girl in this world.
The thickest ice is found in East Antarctica. For example, Lake Vostok, a sub-glacial lake found in East Antarctica has a surface measured at -1,640.4′.
in the middle of the waters
The ice is extremely thick, I believe getting to 3km thick at the thickest
The Laurentide Ice Sheet was thought to be two miles (3.2 km) thick around Nunavik Canada.
google it! go on google images!
ice is generally thicker in the middle of the lake once the lake completely freezes, as the edge of the land at the edge of the lake warms the waters edge making it thinner ice.
Since not all parts of Antarctica have been mapped insofar as its ice sheet thickness is concerned, it may not be possible to identify the absolute thickest ice area. What we do know, however, is that the South Pole sits on ice that is at least 10,000 feet thick. As well, we know that the Vostok Research Station sits on ice that is more than 11,000 feet above mean sea level. As well, in the same area, Lake Vostok exists 13,000 feet under the surface of the ice,
Cables are the thickest wires.
