Polar Regions Directory

Polar regions characterized by their extreme cold climate is also known as the frigid zone. Located near the poles, this region is known to experience extreme cold weather due to a combination of factors like distance from the equator, slanting rays of the sun reaching the region and that too spread across a large area, reflected sun’s heat due to the huge ice deposits. The polar regions are covered with ice and thus the flora and fauna in the region too are different from the other parts of the world. Polar region witnesses significant variations in the daylight hours too, this is evident from the long daylight hours of approximately 24 hours during summer and no daylight at all during winters. The polar regions due to the extreme weather conditions and snow and ice are different in every way from the other regions of the world.
