Which has no land under it the North or the South Pole?
At the North Pole, there is no land, in contrast to Antarctica. Instead, the Arctic Ocean is completely covered by ice, which is floating on top of it. The volume and thickness of Arctic sea ice has decreased dramatically over the past four decades, according to experts, both during the summer and winter months. Scientists attribute this to global warming.

The average temperature in the tropical zone during the coldest month is 18 degrees Celsius. This is warmer than the average temperature during the hottest month of the year in the arctic region.
Is there land under the South Pole?
Despite the fact that the land at the South Pole is only a few hundred meters above sea level, the ice sheet that covers it is around 2,700 meters (9,000 feet) thick, according to NASA. Because of its higher elevation, the South Pole is significantly colder than the North Pole, which is located in the center of the Arctic Ocean.
Why is there land on the South Pole but not the north?
This is due to the continual tilting of the Earth’s axis as it circles around the sun during its orbit. Aside from their geographical locations, another significant distinction between the two poles is that ‘the South Pole is located on land, but the North Pole is located in the Arctic Ocean,’ according to Urban.
Why is there a South Pole but no North Pole?
North Pole: The North Pole is defined as being the northernmost point on the Earth, and it is located diametrically opposite to the South Pole. When compared to the South Pole, which is located on a continental land mass, the North Pole is situated in center of the Arctic Ocean, surrounded by waters that are nearly continuously covered with continually moving sea ice.
