Antarctica Geograpy

The Antarctic Ice Sheet controls the region. That is the biggest single piece of ice on Earth. In the Antarctic, The ice cover fast grows in size by 3 million square kilometers (1.2 million square miles) by the end of summer and 19 million square kilometers (7.3 million square miles) in winter.

Antarctica Continent holds several mountain Peaks that include the Transantarctic Mountains, which are divided into regions eastern and western.
Some peaks reach more than 4,500 meters or 14,764 ft in Heights. The altitude of the Antarctic Ice Sheet itself is about 2,000 meters (6,562 feet) and moves 4,000 meters (13,123 feet) over the sea level near the center of Antarctica.

Antarctica Climate

Antarctica has a very cold and dry climate. Winter temperatures along the Antarctic coast typically range from 10 ° C to 30 ° Celsius (14 ° Fahrenheit to 22 ° Fahrenheit). During the summer, coastal areas fluctuate around 0 ° C (32 ° F) but can reach temperatures as low as 9 ° C (48 ° F).

In mountainous and inland areas, temperatures are much cooler dropping below 60 ° C (76 ° F) in winter and 20 ° C (4 ° F) in summer. In 1983, the Russian research station Vostok measured the coldest temperature ever recorded on Earth: 89.2 ° C (128.6 ° F). It is still falling like snow. It is believed that the interior of Antarctica receives only 50 to 100 millimeters (24 inches) of water (in the form of snow) each year. The continental desert is one of the driest deserts on the planet.
