    The Antarctic Convergence, which encircles Antarctica roughly 1, miles (1, kilometers) off the coast, divides the cold southern water mass from warmer waters to the north. The Antarctic Circumpolar Current, the world’s largest ocean current, moves eastward around the continent at an average speed of about half a knot (1 kilometer per hour). The Antarctic Book of Cooking and Cleaning is a new food and cultural history book based on a Russian-Canadian environmental clean-up expedition the authors led to a research station km off the Antarctic Peninsula. It portrays everyday life at the bottom of the world, offering readers an unparalleled insight into surviving – and having fun – on the world’s most desolate continent.
