    The strength of the local heat effect increased as the wind velocity decreased, reaching an average value of 3.2�C under calm (<2 m/s) conditions and maximum single-day magnitude of no less than 6�C. For example, the ozone hole that develops over Antarctica each spring actually intensifies a vortex of winds that circles the South Pole. Choosing your polar cruise is a question of priorities. They can be considered to largely represent the statistical signature of where transitory high and low pressure systems that appear on synoptic charts tend to be most common.
