    In the Köppen climate classification system, Class E consists of the polar climate and the alpine climate.

    The definition of a Class E climate is that no month, not even even in the summer, has a mean temperature above 10 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit). So there's the most obvious similarity; the polar climate and the alpine climate are both very cold!

    Another feature polar and alpine climates have in common is glaciers. Because temperatures are cold year-round, snow doesn't melt, it builds up over time instead. Eventually, the snow compresses under its own weight, and forms glaciers.
