Middle

This is reputed to be the windiest place on earth, because the average wind speed during that period was 72 kilometres per hour (45 miles per hour), and gusts of more than 240 kph (150 mph) ...read more.

Conclusion

They create dramatically low effective temperatures, due to the wind-chill factor. Also strong gale-force winds are quite common, especially in the region between 40�-60�S. These cyclonic storms are caused by extremely cold air coming from Antarctica meeting the relatively warm and moist air over more northerly seas. This accounts for the fearsome reputation of the Drake Passage. The storms tend to circle Antarctica from west to east. ...read more.

  2. Peri-glacial areas

    Oil leaks, subsiding railway lines, destroyed vegetation, decreased fish stocks have all resulted from efforts, by man, to exploit the remote and inhospitable environments. Peri-glacial environments are fragile for two reasons; firstly the ecosystem is highly susceptible to interference, because of the limited number and diversity of species involved.
