Journey to the Pole of Cold

The Pole of Cold. Permafrost cave which was used in earlier times to store food in the summer - close to the village of Tomtor. The cave has in winter and summer a constant temperature of -10°C or lower . In geology, permafrost or permafrost soil is soil at or below the freezing point of water (0 °C or 32 °F) for two or more years. Ice is not always present, as may be in the case of nonporous bedrock, but it frequently occurs and it may be in amounts exceeding the potential hydraulic saturation of the ground material. Tomtor, Jakutien, Yakutia, Russian Federation, Russia, RUS, 19.01.2010
