In both polar regions most life has to be mobile as the ice does not allow permanent shelter. The abiotic factors that influence Tundra are strong winds, rainfall, short summer days, long. As the upper edge of the solar disc disappears below the horizon, the Sun has set, and there is no longer midnight Sun.

Rising sea temperatures affect the tiniest of sea creatures such as krill � the effects are seen all the way up the food chain to seals and whales.* But while it is true that a flight to Patagonia or Svalbard will contribute to climate change, so will every other flight you take, every car journey you make and every bit of food you eat that has travelled from a distant farm.

As global warming causes sea ice to melt earlier and reform later, polar bears’ hunting time is reduced. Further studies estimated that the ozone layer would be depleted by CFC's by about 7% within 60yrs and based on such studies the US banned CFC's in aerosol sprays in 1978.
