Place matching stickers on two Polar Animal Shapes. Polar bears, penguins, seals, whales, and walrus are a few of the wildlife that live in these very cold regions. Students study the different types of penguins. In the Arctic, the melting of polar ice packs is accelerating to the point that the National Snow and Ice Data Center has reported that the North Pole may briefly be ice free. The ice sheets in the Southern Hemisphere are more than that found along the Northern Hemisphere.

But you appear to be unaware that there was a well publicized study last year projecting an ice free Arctic by the summer of 2013. “AL GORE: One study estimated that it could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years. Chemical reactions on the surfaces of the particles that form these clouds convert chlorine compounds from inert forms into highly reactive species. It also meant that I was also in Argentina and closer to Ushuaia - Areolinas Argentina sometimes delay and cancel flights at very short notice.

As Antarctica is surrounded by water on all four sides, the moderating influence of water is nearly absent in the interiors. Many of the fish that occur here are unique, for example the icefish - so called because their blood and body fluids contains antifreeze and lack red blood cells. He added significant challenges remained in predicting ice melting, due to the complexity of the interactions between the warming air and oceans and the great ice sheets and glaciers. "In Greenland, we are seeing really dramatic losses in ice, but it is still uncertain if it will slow, stay the same or accelerate further." • One of the summary paragraphs introducing this article mistakenly stated the melting of Greenland and Antarctic has caused 11m of sea level rise.
