There is more information available on this subject at Antarctica on the English Wikipedia.

Antarctica is one of the seven continents and sits on the southern pole of the human homeworld of Earth. Despite this, it is uninhabited by humans.[1]


During the Battle for Earth, the Covenant had started an excavation at Mount Erebus on Ross Island on the continent. This was stopped by Blue Team using a HAVOK tactical nuclear weapon.[2]


It is covered in ice, considered an arid desert and has tundras.[1]
