The part of the continent to the west of the Weddell Sea and east of the Ross Sea is called Western Antarctica and the remaining half of it is known as the Eastern Antarctica. Some woody plants (stunted trees) may be 100 years old. And despite the fact that most of the ocean is frozen, there are areas where the Inuit people live in this Polar Region. By accurately identifying the full array of tourist activities and their behavioral patterns, then placing that information within the context of their natural and human resource settings, we can begin to understand key relationships.

B - Dry Climates: with deficient precipitation during most of the year. Finally, much of the information that does exist on precipitation within the Arctic tends to be widely scattered in the scientific literature and is often viewed only in the context of a particular local problem, with little emphasis on the regional amount of precipitation ( Humlum 2002 ). It is important to understand the relation between the permafrost and active layers because a continual long-term decrease in permafrost thickness with consequent increase in active layer thickness is thought to be an indicator of long-term warming.

During the winter, the ocean around Antarctica freezes, surrounding the continent with ice that expands far out to sea. The structure of the ocean floor includes a continental shelf usually less than 160 miles (about 260 km) wide that attains its maximum width of more than 1,600 miles (2,600 km) in the vicinity of the Weddell and Ross seas.
