Tundra Climate

The Tundra is covered in snow with hardly any trees. It's cold all year long, during the summer the sun shines almost all 24 hours. It has been named "the land of the midnight sun". Summer only lasts 6-10 weeks and it never gets warmer than 45-50* F.

Landforms

The biggest mountain in the Arctic Circle is The Brooks Mountain. Most bodies of water, except the ocean, melted into Permafrost.
