Location Paragraph: The North Pole is snowy and dense. Tundra's various locations are located in Northern North America, Northern Europe, Northern Russia and many sections are located near the North Pole. The tundra biome is characterized by extremely cold temperatures and treeless, frozen landscapes. There are two types of tundra, the arctic tundra and the alpine tundra . The arctic tundra is located between the north pole and the coniferous forests or taiga region. It is characterized by extremely cold temperatures and land that remains frozen year-round. Alpine tundra occurs in frigid mountaintop regions at very high elevations.Alpine tundra can be found in high elevations anywhere in the world, even in tropic regions. Although the land is not frozen year-round as in arctic tundra regions, these lands are typically covered in snow for most of the year.

Climate Paragragh:The winter temperatures average about -34.44 C throughout most of the true Arctic including the North Pole. The coldest weather occurs in northeastern Siberia. There, January temperatures average -40 C, and have reached -69.44 C. Most other parts of Siberia and the sub arctic sections of Northern Asia, Northern Canada, and Central Alaska have an average winter temperature of about -28.88 C. The mildest winters occur in the coastal regions of the Pacific Oceans, where January temperatures average about 30 C. The arctic tundra is located in the extreme Northern hemisphere around the North Pole. This area experiences low amounts of precipitation and extremely cold temperatures for most of the year. The arctic tundra typically receives less than 25.4 cm of precipitation per year which mostly comes in the form of snow. With temperatures averaging below -1.1 C in winter. In summer, the sun remains in the sky during the day and night. Summer temperatures average between 1.67-12.78 C. The alpine tundra biome is also a cold climate region with temperatures averaging below freezing at night. This area receives more precipitation throughout the year than the arctic tundra. The average annual precipitation is around 50.8 cm. Most of this precipitation is in the form of snow. The alpine tundra is also a very windy area. Strong winds blow at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour.
