Positioned asymmetrically around the South Pole and largely south of the Antarctic Circle (one of the five major circles of latitude that mark maps of the world), Antarctica is surrounded by the Southern Ocean. Rivers exist in Antarctica, the longest being the Onyx. Antarctica covers more than 14 million km2 (5,400,000 sq mi), making it the fifth-largest continent, slightly less than 1.5 times the area of the United States. The coastline is almost 18,000 km (11,200 mi) long: Of the four coastal types, 44% of the coast is floating ice in the form of an Ice shelf, 38% consists of Ice walls that resting on rock, 13% is ice streams or the edge of glaciers, and the remaining 5% is exposed rock.
