All about the Tundra

The Tundra is Dry,Cool and Windy. The tundra is a big block of ice. It takes thousand of years for them to form. It moves and can crush trees,rocks or anything that gets in its way. The tundra is basically the glaicer. Alpine glaciers are found in the large areas of continents. Continental glaciers cover large areas of continents. Tidewater glaciers melt water into the ocean.  Icebergs are bits of glaicer. Gravity moves them.
