    North Pole:

    The North Pole refers to the north purpose of the Earth’s axis. it’s the Arctic region that has vast lots of ice sheets with ashore mass. The Arctic region follows a natural cycle of softening during which around 1/2 the large ice lots melt within the summer and repaired once more throughout the winter. Thus, the large ice lots restore size sporadically. throughout winter, the world of ice lots becomes capable the world of the u. s. of America.

    The North Pole features a skinny layer of ice, twelve to fifteen feet in thickness, thus it’s terribly sensitive to ever-changing weather conditions. it’s believed that just about 1/2 the remaining oil reserves square measure underneath the ice of the Arctic Circle.

    South Pole:

    The pole refers to the south purpose or tip of the Earth’s axis wherever all of the Earth?s lines of meridian meet. it’s a large continent known as Antarctic continent and is around 2900 meters higher than the ocean level. Amundsen was the primary person to succeed in the pole in 1911.

    Antarctica doesn’t have day and night like alternative elements of the planet. Instead, it’s six months of sunshine followed by six months of darkness. It conjointly doesn’t follow a natural cycle of melting, thus if the ice melts at Antarctic continent, it’d not flow from to natural causes and should flow from to the worldwide warming. If all the ice of the pole melts, the ocean level would rise by sixty meters. solely penguins square measure found in Antarctic continent, terrestrial mammals don’t seem to be found.
