  The North Pole Marathon takes place in April and is the only marathon in the world run entirely over water. It’s actually run at Barneo, but competitors are flown to the pole itself after the race.   Earth has a magnetic you imagine a gigantic bar magnet inside of Earth, you'll have a pretty good idea what Earth's magnetic field is shaped like. Of course, Earth DOESN'T have a giant bar magnet inside it; instead, our planet's magnetic field is made by swirling motions of molten iron in Earth's outer core.. Earth has two geographic poles: the North Pole and the South Pole.

The South Pole, the most remote part of the planet, has been warming at triple the global average, as natural variability joins with climate change to produce an abrupt shift in temperature trends. Comparison between North Pole and South Pole: North Pole. South Pole. Location. This is in the middle of the Arctic Ocean surrounded by continents. This is the Antarctic continent surrounded by oceans. Commonly known as. This is a region of floating ice sheet and no land mass, commonly known amidst the Arctic Ocean.

The South Pole is hard to reach. Unlike the North pole, which is covered by the sea and flat sea-ice, the South Pole is on a mountainous continent. This continent is called Antarctica. It is covered by thick ice (more than a mile thick in the centre). The south Pole is very high up, and is very windy.   Shockingly, the North Pole is not the coldest place on the globe even though the temperatures reach a high of 32 degrees. The South Pole is the coldest place on the globe which means that the North Pole is quite a bit warmer. Unlike the South Pole, the North Pole is made up of a thin Arctic ice sheet that sits barely a foot above sea level.

A kind of book I love, which takes a body of knowledge that most of us experience as a bare statement of fact in our education - the Earth has a magnetic field that explains how compasses work and protects from radiation from outer space, and by the way it has flipped end for end multiple times in the distant past - and lays out a detailed history of how we learned about it and how much we /5(17).
