Descripción de editorial
Antarctica is a frozen continent at the southernmost point of our planet. Where the land meets the ocean, huge ice shelves and icebergs flow onto the sea.
Antarctica is so cold that the snow never melts. It has built up over thousands of years to create ice sheets that are over 2.5 miles (four kilometres) thick, burying an active volcanic land that was once roamed by dinosaurs.
