The Arctic Region
Landforms: There is nothing to block your view… There is nothing to block your view… - except for the occational PINGOS! What are pingos: Pingos are permantly frozen mountains. They are formed in a permanently frozen area as “almost frozen water” pushes into the permafrost area then freezes, then more “almost frozen water” pushes and freezes and that continues until a mountain has formed over many years. That was hard to understand right? TOO BAD!!!
Landforms part 2; so what there’s two parts get over it… You know how we talked about PINGOS, well in the arctic we DON’T have ANY trees to block the wondrous view of the pingos. You know how we talked about PINGOS, well in the arctic we DON’T have ANY trees to block the wondrous view of the pingos. - the reason is our ground is permantly frozen which doesn’t allow the trees to put down their roots - the soil is in poor shape because nothing is decomposed… heck… it’s only ice, come on. …but in the summer we have BEAUTIFUL flowers…ha beat that! …but in the summer we have BEAUTIFUL flowers…ha beat that!
Landforms part 3; okay this is the last one! We promise… Ever worry about when you go to the ocean that a big wave will come and knock you out and you will drown…? Ever worry about when you go to the ocean that a big wave will come and knock you out and you will drown…? - well here in the arctic we don’t have huge bodies of water…heck we don’t have any of the small ones either…and the big ones are almost permantly frozen… …so basically, you have a slim to nothing chance of drowning
Landforms part 4; okay so there’s one more! Calm down. DID YOU KNOW…? DID YOU KNOW…? -If a pingo becomes warm and starts to melt and then it collapses it is called a OGNIP…which is just pingo spelt backwards…hehehehe!...and no we didn’t make that up. -There are no hills in the arctic because when the ice age was ending the extremely huge iceberg pulled back… and in doing that it scraped away any mountains in its path.
Landforms part 5; Just kidding, just kidding we’re all done with landforms. Just kidding, just kidding we’re all done with landforms. Now on to climate…
Climate Unlike those crazy and humid places where it’s EXTEREMELY HOT in the summer and BRUTALLY cold in the winter… Arctic summers are at a nice moderate temperature for about… one month and that’s our growing season…hey some people don’t like summer that much, deal… *because we don’t have a lot of precipitation the summer will be a beautiful sunny day *another cool thing is that the sun never sets in the summer.
Climate part 2 winter… If you like winter but don’t always having to worry about too much snow… …then the arctic is for you even though people think that the arctic is a place that has snow 24/7 it’s not true… *but what is true is that the ground had snow and it didn’t melt in the summer and so it just stayed and then at the next snow fall the snow just compacts on the old snow. And so on and so on…but you get the picture. Another thing is that in the winter the sun never rises…cool huh?
Climate part 3; I think this is all… DID YOU KNOW…? Because of the way that the arctic is formed and because of where it is in the world we don’t have these hazards; *Chinooks *Ice Storms *Flooding *Forest Fires…we don’t have any trees…duh *Hurricanes We have permafrost…but it’s at our advantage…hehe.
Climate part 4; Nah I’m kidding, there’s no more things to say about our climate…. …and now on to Ecosystem…
Ecosystem Biome = Tundra Like wildlife but hate the dangers of it…? -Thanks to the climate there are no pesky bugs or insects to get in your way of enjoying the wild… -…the reasons are many but here are a few to explain, *many animals cannot adapt to the cold climate like the other animals can *many insects need proper growing soil to live in
Ecosystem part 2; YES a part twooo…I’m not happy noooo Also to add on to before; *because we don’t have trees, *no trees means no forest fires We do have arctic animals like; *fish, the arctic hare, the arctic fox and belugas…and fish is the main diet AND we have HUSKIES.
Lifestyle DID YOU KNOW…? DID YOU KNOW…? -that the arctic is as close to the magnetic north pole as you can get -we are also close to where Santa Claus lives -because of the land the houses have to be on stilts…that’s even if they are near pingos…if they had a basement then it would melt the pingo and turn it into an ognip…hehe -you can ride dog sleds and have a freezer all year round because of the permafrost…cool huh… -statistic show that the arctic people who work make more than any one in the other regions. -statistic show that the arctic people who work make more than any one in the other regions.
