Polar Environment: Issues and Challenges

Ravi Mishra (Editor)
Synopsis Polar regions - Arctic Ocean in the north and Antarctica in the south - are permanently covered with ice or snow. The average temperatures of even the warmest summer months rise only a few degrees above freezing point and in the summer the seas are covered by floating ice. The core of the high Arctic is a great ocean, 5.5 million sq.m. in area, covered all year by ice that drifts about the North Pole. Antarctica, by contrast, is a disc of land, with the South Pole near its centre, covering an area only a little smaller than the Arctic Ocean and carrying 95 per cent of the world's permanent ice. This book covers authentic scientific details on important issues of polar environment. The themes taken for elaborate description are: the polar regions; environments of polar regions; climate of polar regions; terrestrial environments; freshwater environments; marine environments; plant life; polar animals, birds of water and land; marine mammals; land mammals; man and the polar regions etc. Academics besides the scientists in the field concerned will find this book of utmost use.
