The Coldest Places On Earth



September 24th, 2013 by in Geography with 724 Views

Have you ever wondered where the coldest places on Earth are to live or visit? Some of these places are not inhabited, but rather used for research purposes.

1) Vostok Station, Antartica

This location is 3,500m above sea level and is the Russian research station. This area contains one of the worlds largest lakes called Lake Vostok however it is buried under 4km of glacier ice! The lowest temperatures recorded were during late July, early August with a temperature of -89.2 degrees C or -128.6F.

2) Eureka, Canada

This is Canada’s research base and costs $20,000 in airfare to arrive and visit. The average air temperature here is -20C but in the winter drops to -40C.

3) Oymyakon, Russia

In a town of 500-800 people, in a village named after a hot spring, people can expect to experience extreme temperatures. This village is located 350km south of the Arctic Circle and has had temperatures as low as -71.2C.

4) International Falls, Minn

This isn’t quite as cold as some of the other places we have mentioned however this is known as the “Icebox of the Nation” in the United States. The average temperature during the winter is 2.7F and gets an average of 65.5 inches of snowfall a year.

5) Snag, Yukon, Canada

This is next to the Alaskan Highway and often has freezing winds and foggy skies. The coldest temperature this area has seen was -64C or -81.4F.

 

Have you ever been to any of these places or heard about anybody who has visited during the winter months?

    This places have crazily low temperatures. I do not think life can be supported with such low temperatures.

    I live in the North America, but close to Canada. I also live on the lake so lake effect weather is not fun. I can relate to these people more than I care to admit. I’m sure all of these people would love global warming to come faster!
