1. INTRODUCTION Antarctica is a magnificent display of interaction between air and the various phases of water (vapor, liquid and solid) in a pristine atmosphere, where the direct solar energy reaches the Pole for six months of the year at very low elevation angle, and for the other six months of the year, it is dark. 5 m km2 (or a circle with a radius of about 2000 km). , 2004; Hall and Visbeck, 2002; Parkinson, 2004; Simmonds and King, 2004; Naithani, 1995). The Southern Ocean is dominated by a yearly variation of sea ice; its maximum area is about 19 million km2 in late winter and the minimum about 4 million km2 during late summer (Arrigo and Thomas, 2004).
