Outside looking over his facility Kenji explains various attributes including how much water his Reindeer need daily.
Both Professor Romanovsky and Professor Yoshikawa’s life work involve Permafrost research.
Kenji indicates near us is a monitoring borehole which at about 3-4 meters depth there is a temperature of (+1°C) year round with no seasonal variation.
Scanning out across the pond we look and hear Kenji say that in the Black Spruce forest below us there is permafrost but not up here.
This seemed very interesting since I would normally associate permafrost to be located at higher elevations not lower ones in the same kilometer area.
We all then go inside a specially designed insulated cold room which maintains a constant temperature year round. Cool enough that in the summer mosquitoes don’t like to enter but good for eating watermelon.
I want to grab my flashlight in the car so I jump out and the video concludes for now.
This video was shot with a 360° panoramic camera so you can look around while it’s running or pause and look at any specific feature you find of interest.
