Which is colder, the tundra or the North Pole? Thanks
On the average, the tundra (that located in Siberia) has a colder average
annual temperature than that of the North Pole. But the coldest locations on
earth occur in the southern hemisphere, in Antartica.
This does not include mountain locations, such as Mt. Everest and others,
where the extreme altitude contributes to their cold temperatures.
