Transcript of The Arctic Lowlands

The Arctic Lowlands Physical Features In the Arctic Lowlands, there are lots of icebergs and pingo(round hills). When it's summer, underground is still frozen it's called permafrost Climate The temperature is usually cold in January the temperature can go as low as -45 degrees celsuis and the highest in summer is 15 degrees celsuis. and Temperature Precipitation In Arctic lowlands, there is a little
precipitation. In summer, rain is not usual and in winter it has some snowfalls. Daylight In the middle of winter, it's very dark and very
long. In summer, it has lot of sunlight day and
night and it's very short. In the middle of winter,
the Sun doesn't rise above the horizon at all. Vegatation In the Arctic lowland, the climate and the physical features affect the plants that grows in this region. The cold temperature, low precipitition, thin soil and permafrost are examples of things that affect the vegatation. Plants affection Plants Only small scattered plants like, mosses and
low-growing shrubs grow in the region. The region's area for the vegetation is called tundra, this area doesn't have much vegetation. Animal Life In the Arctic Lowlands, the animals that live in the region, they have made adapation to help them live in the Arctic. Adaptation Land animals Land animals have thick fur and many have white fur
or their fur turn white in winter so they can blend in. These are some land animals, they are polar bear, muskoxen, caribou, Arctic fox and Arctic hare. By: Katie The marine animals have adapted to
the cold water and the ice by a fat called blubber under the skin or fur. They can swim under ice but they have to find holes or water that is not cover so, they can come up to breathe. These are some marine animals. Marine animals harp seal Walrus Thanks for
watching Many birds live in the Arctic Lowlands in
summer. They raise their young and then
migrate down south in autumn. Loons, snow
geese, snowy owls and ivory gulls live in the
region. Birds Natural Resources Kaitlyn is my partner and she is doing Appalachian. My diorama is using Arctic lowlands and Cordillera. The Arctic Lowlands has a few renewable
resources other than animal life. In Arctic Lowlands, there is no farming land or forestry. The animals and marine life provide food and clothing for the people that live in that region. Some resources or products are sold outside of the region. Renewable resources The region has lots of important non-renewable like zinc, lead, oil and coal. Diamonds, gold and sapphires are found on Baffin Island in Nunavut (near Iqaluit). A large oil field lies under Beaufort Sea and the Mackenzie Delta of the Northwest Territories . Oil companies have been exploring and drilling test wells in the Mackenzie Delta and offshore in the Beaufort Sea since in the 1970's. Some products from the Arctic Lowlands, except for minerals, are sold somewhere else in Canada or in the world. It include furs, frozen fish like Arctic chars and works of art like soapstone sculptures. Non-renewable and transport resources Soapstone is an easily carved stone
found in lots of places in Canada, including the far North, where the inuits live. Inuits artists have created/made soapstone sculptures that have been sold around the world. Usually inuit soapstone sculptures show the relationship between the inuits/people and the animals of the region. Soapstone Soapstone
