Antarctica is a large continent at the Earth’s south pole that is almost completely covered by an immense ice sheet thousands of metres thick.

The Antarctic ice sheet holds about 90% of the fresh water that is present on the planet’s surface, according to the British Antarctic Survey. The interior of the continent is extremely dry with only small amounts of annual snowfall, making much of Antarctica a desert.
