At 6th of April the first persons reached the geographic North Pole, they where Robert Edwin Pearly, Matthew Henson and four Inuit (Eskimos from Greenland or Canada); Ootah, Seegloo, Egingway and Oqueah. Robert has been claimed to be the first person who has reached the North Pole.
This is Robert Pealy. The first person on the North Pole.
The North Pole Climate
The North Pole is warmer than the South Pole. The North Pole lies in the middle of the ocean on drift ice, rather the South Pole is a continental land mass far above the sea-level. The temperature in the winter on the North Pole is between -50 and -13°C. In the end of November in 2013 the average temperature was 20°C higher than normally. It is average 85.83% chance of humidity. The North Pole lays 1 meter above the sea level. The North Pole gets average every day 161 cubic kilometre new ice in November. But this year it is 10% less; average 139 cubic kilometre. The North Pole, and a huge streak area around it, is covered by ice. It is not land ice, like on the Antarctic and Greenland, but it is sea-ice. The sea-ice is average between the 1 and 4 meters thick and exists of frozen ocean water. If the temperature keeps staying it will have consequences for the environment. Academics have expectations that the sea level, because melting of the ice caps on the North Pole, the coming centuries will rise with 1 meter. Because of the rising of the sea level the chance of flood, ground shifting and bottom sag will grow. Polar region is the indication for the place north of the North Pole Circle(the Arctic). At the northern hemisphere is the Northern Ice-sea. There are a few differences between the North Pole and the South Pole, like:
- the North Pole is fig by continents, the South Pole is fig by the ocean.
- the North Pole is 1 meter above the sea level, the South Pole is 2835 meter above the sea level.
- the average temperature of a year on the North Pole is -18°C, the average temperature of a year on the South Pole is -50°C.
These differences all have something to do with the melting of the ice caps. Because the ice is melting the North Pole lays lower than the South Pole. Because it’s colder on the South Pole, the ice don’t melt (very fast). The ice is melting on the North Pole, there is it warmer.
The Northern light
The Aurora or the northern light/the polar light is a natural display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (the Arctic and Antarctic) regions. The Aurora is a light phenomena in the earth's atmosphere that in the darkness can be observe. People see it especially in geographic latitude. Other names are the northern light (aurora borealis) and southern light (aurora australis). If the polar light itselfs shows, we see a light glow or is the light visible as moving curve, steel bundle or curtains of light and very selden it is flaming. Sometimes there is a bow at the northern horizon from where the light beams as searchlights shoot upwards.
