Climate

To some people it doesn't sound so cold but usely the arctic is-90 F degrees because,all the water in the arctic absorbs all the heat. Although the water around the north pole could turn you to ice. I think this is a very interesting fact,the the sun does not set for 6 months.

Arctic ocean

Although, the arctic ocean is dark and cold it still supports life. Even though, the deepest part of the arctic ocean is 8,050 feet deep. But that is only one part of the arctic ocean though.11,090,000 square miles of the arctic circle is ocean waters so there is still so much to explore.

Life in The Arctic

Believe it or not the arctic circle actually has life! Although most of it is in southern areas. But, there are walruses and seals in the northern parts, and polar bears and other land animals are likely to find.
