In the coastal areas the wind velocity is 150 meters per hour. The 5 meter thick ice of this continent deposited from 5 lakhs years encloses the climate of the past. These gas bubbles enclosed in the ice are a witness of pollution caused by environmental gases, industrialization, atomic bomb and fertilizers used for crops. The future climate and weather can be predicted on the basis of research on theses factors. Every year during winters about 7 million sq. kms of ice deposits around Antarctica, which melts during summers.
