- Also there are areas at higher elevation on the rim of polar craters that see the Sun more than half of the time.
- However, there may be water locked in permafrost in some deep polar craters.
- This means that its equatorial radius would be 40 kilometers greater than the polar radius.
- And also things like what's happening to the glaciers and the different mountain regions or the polar ice caps or ocean temperatures.
- Then, in early January, it made a series of planned manoeuvres to change its equatorial orbit to a polar one, to prepare for its scientific mission and to make contact with Beagle 2.
- Remote echographic diagnostics also have a role to play in remote and emergency situations such as in many parts of the third world, the polar regions and at sea.
- Pipits and wagtails can be found in a variety of habitats from temperate to tropical and polar regions.
- The eternal droughts and continental erosion and melting polar ice caps, that's what you call your collateral damage.
- Their preferred habitat is the annual sea ice over the continental shelf and inter-island archipelagos that encircle the polar basin.
- The polar ice caps have expanded, the sea-level has fallen, and a new plant has made its appearance: grass.
- Glaciers, permafrost and polar ice caps are melting, and droughts, floods and more extreme storms are occurring more frequently in many parts of the world.
