Nineteen populations of polar bears are distributed in Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Norway, and Russia. So far in this online textbook we have discovered that the climate of a particular place is the function of a number of factors. Ice sheet and glacier studies will be flown over the Antarctic Peninsula and West Antarctica, including Pine Island Glacier, an area scientists believe could undergo rapid changes. UNEP launched the fourth volume of the Global Environment Outlook series in 2004, where specific chapters are dedicated to the poles.

But now the lands themselves are facing a much bigger threat than ever before: climate change. Thankfully, the vast majority of the world's scientists do not believe in the IPCC's climate political-science proclamations and thus continue performing/producing empirical research to determine the science truth. Another location, at 60° North latitude, would be influenced by polar air masses during the winter solstice, the polar front during the equinoxes, and by subtropical air masses and the subtropical high pressure zone during the summer solstice.
