The Polar High Pressure belt is located between 85°N to 90°N and 85°S to 90°S.

  • The Polar Regions experience cold climatic conditions as the rays of the Sun are extremely slanting.
  • The cold air sinks giving rise to high pressure areas.
  • At places where the temperature is permanently low, air is dense and heavy. These Polar Regions have permanent ice caps.
