What continent is the Arctic part of?

    The Arctic is not associated soley with any one continent.  In fact, this region of the world encompasses multiple land masses, as well as a large area of ocean.  The North Pole and surrounding area are located above the Arctic Ocean; although the ice that covers the pole provides an illusion of land, there is actually just water underneath.  The northern reaches of North America, Europe, and Asia all extend into the region usually referred to as “the Arctic,” as do several large islands like Greenland and Svalbard.  So unlike the Antarctic, which contains one main land mass, the Arctic is a hodgepodge of land, water, and ice spread out over a very large area.
