ANTARTICA
http://www.nidokidos.org/userpix/416_0_5.jpg
The Antarctic continent is located in the South Pole of our Planet.
Its geography, climate and biological conditions provide a unique enviroment.
Antarctica has the lowest temperatures in our planet reaching
70° Celsius below zero with winds of 300 km. Per hour.
Containing 90% of the planet’s ice it’s the major reserve of fresh water on Earth.
About 99% of Antarctica is covered with ice at an average thicknes of 2,500 meters, reaching in some places as deep as 4,776 meters.
If the ice layer would melt all the Earth’s Oceans would rise 70 meters above the actual level.
The Antarctic Continent functions as one of Earth’s “refrigerators” regulating the oceanic currents and the world’s climate.
Any significant enviromental impact would alter the global patterns of weather with disastrous consecuences.
In spite of the severe weather Antarctica has rich animal life amazingly well adapted to the harsh conditions.
The arrival of the first tourists in the 50’s was a main cause of enviromental concern.
Strict rules and regulations were created
as to protect the ecology of the enviroment from the visitors such as creating restricted zones , mantain a safe distance from the wild life, do not feed nor touch the animals, and rigid control of waste disposal.
