What you should know about sea ice.
By. Casey Pickens
Where are you traveling?
You can find sea ice in the arctic ocean. Most people don't like the cold and would rather see the animals in a zoo where it is warm but once you have experienced the beautiful animals in it's habitat without being disturbed by humans and their crying babies, you will have an awesome time.
What is the average temperature?
Burr, it's cold during the summer and winter. The average temperature during the summer is zero celsius and negative thirty celsius in the winter. so be prepare to have icicles under your nose
What should you take?
You are traveling to a place where most of the ground is covered in snow and ice so it wouldn't be relevant to bring shorts or a tank top. You should bring snow pants, long underwear, a very warm jacket that can block off most of the wind, a hat, gloves, warm socks, a scarf, and snow boots. You should also bring some heating pads, a flashlight just in case you are stuck in a snow storm, and some blankets. You must be prepared for the worst so bundle up.
Whats at the bottom of the ocean?
What's more fun than exploring the ocean and seeing something you don't see everyday. If you go diving in the Arctic ocean, you might see narwhal's, Walruses, seals, whales, and penguins. They are all beautiful creatures that you might see in a zoo. You may also see a continuous chain of volcanic seafloor mountains that runs like a giant zipper throughout the globe. You may also see deep abyss and the continental shelf. Whale the water may be cold when you dive down deep under water so remember to re- surf-ice to get some air.
What affects the ocean and what can we do to stop it?
Waves have a huge impact on the organisms that live in the Arctic ocean. They help oxygenate the water beneath. They also carry important nutrients like plankton and provides breeding grounds. Weather also impacts the ocean like El Nino affects the regional atmosphere pressure and sea surface temperatures. One of the most biggest impacts on the ocean and it's critters are humans. Eighty percent of the worlds oil and natural gas can be located beneath the arctic and human activity such as large mines and gold mining. We pollute the ocean with trash, sewage, oil, chemicals, heat, and noise. We also destroy habitats and introduce native species, although their are none right now, their could be in the future. We can protect the ocean by throwing away trash/ recycling and start protecting animals instead of destroying them and their homes.
