While there is, still, no conclusive evidence of a German/Alien base on Antarctica, It is beyond doubt that something highly unusual was happening on, or around, the frozen continent. And this decline will continue the more global temperatures rise. The Polar Regions remain wrapped up in thick ice-blanket throughout the year. Some of the technology includes snow sleds, good houses, snow shoes, sunglasses, oil lamps, warm clothes, fur and blubber mitts.

Safety was paramount at all times from getting on and off the zodiacs to being advised not to go out side as the decks were covered in ice. The tilt also affects the angle at which the Sun's radiation hits the Earth. Contesting the Arctic provides a map of potential governance options for the Arctic and addresses and evaluates the ways in which Arctic stakeholders throughout the region are seeking to pursue them. It’s thought that ancestors of today’s penguins could fly. This approach to a political "science" report has often ended up producing latrine-level science, such as the discredited 'hockey-stick' temperature chart and now infamous Himalayagate affair.

A map of the Antarctic region from 1899 showing the South Pole and Antarctic Circle, Graham Land, Enderby Land, South Victoria Land, Wilkes Land, and Alexander Land. There are no local people in Antarctica which makes it a special continent in our planet. As global warming causes sea ice to melt earlier and reform later, polar bears’ hunting time is reduced. WHALES -Are mammals -- they breathe air, maintain a constant body temperature, and have hair at some stage of development. -Swim thousands of miles from other oceans to visit the Antarctic seas, where they fatten themselves on krill and fish; for example, a blue whale can eat three tons of krill every day. -There are two types of whales: Baleen whales and toothed whales. -Baleen whales live on krill which they "filter" through baleen plates in their mouths. -The toothed whales have small peg-like teeth and eat mainly fish -The killer whale eats small penguins which it likes to tip off ice floes.

Shackleton died at South Georgia in 1922, while preparing another expedition. New construction will require deeper foundations, thicker insulation, and other preventive measures that will increase construction costs. Technological advances were applied to Antarctic exploration after World War I. For instance, Greenland is shedding five times as much ice as 20 years ago, which fits with a trend of rising air temperatures in the Arctic. It examines the rights of indigenous and other Arctic populations, the precautionary approach, the environmental impact assessment and the duty to monitor offshore hydrocarbon activities.

Precipitation is very low in quantity and very infrequent in distribution, both temporally and spatially. Pregnant polar bears need to eat a lot in the summer and fall build up enough fat reserves to survive the denning period. This event was held in September 2013 at Mansfield College, Oxford. Mount Erebus constantly spurts hot lava onto the ice. Females reach seven feet and weigh 650 pounds.

No one set eyes on Antarctica until 1820, the first human foot stepped ashore a year or two later and it was 1898 before people stayed ashore for a whole year. There are two subspecies – A. p. patagonicus and A. p. halli; patagonicus is found in the South Atlantic and halli elsewhere. As the range of salt concentration in the ocean varies from about 3.2 to 3.8%, oceanographers refer to salt content as 'salinity', express salt concentration as parts per thousand; 34.9 ppt is the average salinity.

Hunting of polar bears as a food source by certain native people and trade in native handicrafts made from polar bears will also continue. And... some of these submarines did appear to be engaged in covert activities. The only landmass far enough south in the Southern Hemisphere to have midnight Sun, is Antarctica. In the Arctic, an ocean is surrounded by continents, while Antarctica is continent surrounded by oceans. By the start of the Devonian period (416 Ma), Gondwana was in more southern latitudes and the climate was cooler, though fossils of land plants are known from this time.
