Antarctica Satellite View
The Antarctic continent is located in the South Pole of our Planet. Its geography, climate and biological conditions provide a unique environment.
 
 
 
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 thickness 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 environmental impact would alter the global patterns of weather with disastrous consequences.
 
 
 
 
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 50s was a main cause of environmental concern. Strict rules and regulations  were created to protect  the ecology of the environment  from the visitors,  such as creating  restricted  zones , maintain  a safe distance from the wild life, do not feed nor touch the animals, and rigid control of waste disposal.
 
 
 
 
 
During the summer months,  (being the pick of the season in January), there is daylight almost 24 hours a day while in winter the days remain on a prolonging half light or penumbra during most of the 24 hours.
