These rough notes and our dead bodies must tell the tale." "For scientific leadership, give me Scott; for swift and efficient travel, Amundsen; but when you are in a hopeless situation, when there seems to be no way out, get on your knees and pray for Shackleton." The last remnants of the ice world are carved into magical shapes by the suns warmth. Some polar bear pelts fetch upwards of $20,000 at auction, and prices continue to soar as demand for hides grows.

During the winter, some regions experience full darkness or twilight - the sun never fully rises. Big decreases in summertime sea ice, then, are more unusual in the Arctic than the Antarctic, and it sets up a process known as “Arctic amplification” of climate change. Despite the freezing temperatures, it gets very little snow - only a few cm of new snow falls each year. However, the winter temperature can drop as low as -90ºF/-68ºC.

QUESTIONS TO ASK AFTER THE EXPERIMENT: 1-What happened to the pulse rate of the student under observation? 2-What kind of behaviors did the student under observation exhibit? 3-What kind of behaviors did the "observers" exhibit as they passed by? 4-As the student under observation, describe the reactions you had to the passersby. 5-How can you interpret these results and how could you apply them to penguin behavior? 6-Predict what might happen to the penguin colonies in the future if this observation behavior continues.

In fact, these scientists state categorically that there are natural, decadal and century-long oscillations that are driving Arctic regional temperature changes over the past, the present and foreseeable future.

Nothing could be further from the truth. only once was it colder in Anchorage (or several other Alaskan communities) than it was in South Dakota! Little snow actually falls in Antarctica; because the air is so cold, what snow that does fall turns immediately to ice. The land around some nickel mines in Russia has become so polluted that the plants in the surrounding area have died. Almost entirely within the Antarctic Circle, it is of great strategic and scientific interest.

The experience is hard to put into words, since few places are as untouched, unique and enduring as Antarctica. There are those of course who could care less, or feel that without polar bears the world would be just a little bit safer. This area was then declared to be under the control of the German expedition, renamed Neu-Schwabenland and hundreds of small stakes, carrying the swastika, were dumped on the snow-covered ground from the Wals to signal the new ownership.

Conversely, in more maritime areas the snow cover usually is thicker and reduces heat loss from the ground surface during winter (see diagram below). Another recent study showed the changes to winds caused by global warming meant that sea ice – whose melting does not add to sea level rise – was very slightly increasing around Antarctica, at the same time as rapidly vanishing in the Arctic. At the conclusion of World War II, the United States stood as one of the most powerful countries in the world.

However, local changes in the frequency of such events are inherently difficult to model and predict. This wide-ranging survey examines his scientific contribution, including the plants and animals he collected, and his conceptualisation of the peoples of the Pacific: it was he who first coined the terms Melanesia and Micronesia.
