Plant colonies often thrive in these areas because of the warmer temperatures and the limitless availability of free water from steam and melting snow or ice. Even though climate change is predicted to take out two-thirds of these animals in the next 35 years, hunting is on the rise. Whereas Arctic sea ice extent was consistently below average throughout 2011, Antarctic sea ice was more variable. The incredibly difficult task confronting explorers is evident when looking at a map of the area lying between Greenland and Alaska.

With the extremely cold temperatures, the snows turn to additional layers of ice, and it perpetuates with very little solar radiation. The sea ice contains only part of the seawater salt, about 0.5% (5 ppt), hence ice formation like evaporation, concentrates salt in the remaining body of seawater. The former USSR also mounted expeditions, in 1946–47 and 1951–52. If all of the Antarctic ice melted, sea levels around the world would rise about 61 meters (200 feet).
