Geographie[eedit | eedit soorce]

Unique tae Antarcticae is the fack it is awmaist hailie cuivered bi Glacier Ice.Tho aftimes sic Ice cuiver is referred tae as the ae singil Ice sheet,in truith it is twa sindrie lairge aureas o ice at differ frae ither in baith physical an heistorical terms. Thir Ice sheets are cryed Aest an Wast Antarcticaen Ice sheets. The Aest Ice sheet is baith the maist muckle o the twa alang wi bein the thickest an auldest an aw.

Tho the continent itsel isnae centred ower The Sooth Pole,the muckle pairt faws intil the Aestern hemisphere an is sae defined bi The Prime Meridian. The Wastren Ice sheet hauds a smawer aurea o land athin The Wastren Hemisphere. This haes The Weddell Sea on the tae side an Ross Sea on the tither. The Moontains cryed The Transantarctic Moontains extend athort the Continent giein us a kennable mairch atween Aest Antarcticae (Muckle Antarcticae) an Wast Antarcticae (Lesser Antarcticae). Ither nor pairts o the Aest Antarcticaen Coast an Penninsula the maist feck o Antarcticae is Sooth o The Antarctic Circle.
