  • Polar regions of Earth

    The polar regions, also called the frigid zones, of Earth are the regions of the planet that surround its geographical poles (the North and South Poles), lying within the polar circles. These high latitudes are dominated by floating sea ice covering much of the Arctic ocean in the north, and by the Antarctic ice sheet on the continent of Antarctica in the South. Wikipedia

  • Antarctica

    Earth's southernmost continent. Situated in the Antarctic region of the Southern Hemisphere, almost entirely south of the Antarctic Circle, and is surrounded by the Southern Ocean. Wikipedia

  • Subantarctic

    Region in the Southern Hemisphere, located immediately north of the Antarctic region. This translates roughly to a latitude of between 46° and 60° south of the Equator. Wikipedia

  • Polar vortex

    Persistent, large-scale, upper-level low-pressure area, less than 1,000 kilometers in diameter, that rotates counter-clockwise at the North Pole and clockwise at the South Pole (called a cyclone in both cases), i.e., both polar vortices rotate eastward around the poles. The vortices weaken and strengthen from year to year. Wikipedia

  • Circle of latitude

    Abstract east–west circle connecting all locations around Earth at a given latitude. Circles of latitude are often called parallels because they are parallel to each other; that is, planes that contain any of these circles never intersect each other. Wikipedia

  • Line of longitude that extends from the North Pole across the Arctic Ocean, Greenland, Iceland, the Atlantic Ocean, the Southern Ocean, and Antarctica to the South Pole. The 20th meridian west forms a great circle with the 160th meridian east. Wikipedia
