The Earth’s north and south poles receive the least amount of sunlight, so these two places are colder than most parts of the earth, and who are colder in the Antarctic and the Arctic?

The Antarctic region is a continent, and the thick ice layer makes the Antarctic’s altitude reach 2,600 meters. Therefore, the Antarctic’s ability to store heat is weak, and the heat obtained is quickly lost. The Arctic land area is small and the thickness of the ice layer is small. Less than half a meter, most of the places are the Arctic Ocean

Because seawater can store more heat, the Arctic Ocean can use its stored heat to slow down the pace of the Arctic cooling, so in general, the average annual temperature of the Antarctic is lower than the North Pole, and the South Pole is of course colder than the Arctic.
