Antarctica is the fifth largest continent on planet Earth, and its inhabitants account for less than one percent of the world's population. Most of the ice on our planet is found in Antarctica, covering this land mass around the South Pole to an average depth of more than one mile. Only the mountains south of the Pacific Ocean are not fully covered with ice.
