Local club folks in Krasnoyarsk swimming in the Yenisei River, while the air temperature was -36°C.

An ice breaker at work. He clears the Detroit River (Michigan) for freighter traffic... Though, I have no idea about the temperatures at that time. I guess it was very cold...

At Lake Léman (Lake Geneva), Switzerland, in January 2005, very cold conditions combined with strong winds resulted in the ice-encrusted landscape shown in the photographs. Temperatures were so cold that wind-generated spray from the lake froze on the surface of anything it touched.

Thanks, JJ; I'm just trying to find some new photos all the time, and it is getting harder and harder.

March 12, 2012 -- The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image of long lines of clouds, known as "streets", wrapping around the southern tip of Greenland on March 6, 2012.

Cloud streets are created by cylinders of air rotating parallel to the surface, forming clouds where the air rises and clear zones where the air falls back downwards. As the air cylinders move from above the sea ice in Baffin Bay out over the warmer southern water, clouds form along the rising air channels.

The Svalbard Global Seed Vault: "Frozen Garden of Eden"



[image not available]


The purpose of this seed bank is to preserve the world’s agricultural specimens in the event of any catastrophic circumstance (see: doomsday scenarios) or destruction by global climate change. On top of that, the Global Seed Vault is meant to stand as a backup for the other 1400 seed banks around the world — in case those fail.

The Norwegian government was responsible for footing the nearly $8 million cost of the seed vault. Other organizations such as The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are helping less fortunate countries with the seed packaging and delivery to the Global Seed Vault.

The storage chambers themselves are reached via an access tunnel about 100 metres long, with an entrance portal on its outside. The entrance portal will be the only visible part of the facility.

In total, the vault will be able to hold up to 4.5 million different seed samples, all of which is said to be housed in an "almost endless lifetime" facility.
