The natural flora and fauna does not have a big influence on the environment. The continent has absence of higher order plants. The higher order plants refer to those that markedly exhibit flowers, leaves, root system and fruits. The research regarding the vegetation of this place started after 1960. This was done after the predominant plants of this region were collected in large numbers as samples and were grouped into species to do a selective analysis. Many important conclusions were drawn after studying the plant density, life cycle, behavior and chemical characteristics.

The Figure 4. shows that the surface based layer has about 275 m as the thickness, which is varying at different timings. This variability is caused by the radiative processes influenced by the prevailing wind. Also, many thermal gradients are imbedded in the inversion, as the depiction is not just one dark patch, rather, there are many colors are an integral part of it. This shows that there must be some wind blowing at the site, which intensified at 0645 hrs. Moreover, the lighter wind was blowing throughout the record as can be seen by the green colored vertical An Insight into the Ocean-Ice-Air Interactions over the East Antarctic Marine… 21 lines, indicating wind noise.
