Todo bellísimo, pero demasiado frío most of the year.

Мне очень интересно - какая температура на этом острове летом/зимой?

I'm so interested - what temperature on this island in summer/winter?


Claudio Pedrazzi on January 17, 2010

xoomer, sorry I was there as a tourist.
In summer it is around 10 °C. There is this wonderful webcam, if you are interested.

xoomer on January 18, 2010

Everything alright, Claudio. Thanks you, it's great! As I understood that's webcam isn't online now ?

Can I ask again, please... That's yellow small circle on the picture - it is polar Sun ?

Claudio Pedrazzi on January 18, 2010

Hi xoomer, the webcam is well alive, I'm seeing it now and it has the right date and time. Keep in mind that there is the polar night now up there! So even at noon there is NO sun! Here is the address: Then, about the polar sun...? if you are speaking of my photo, no, the sun comes from the right, as you can see from some shadows, so it will certainly not be in the photo. finally, here is my whole collection of Svalbard photos Hope this answers your questions! Greetings!

I am watching a tv show about this place.It will probably be the last existing remains of man when we are all gone...

Claudio Pedrazzi on February 20, 2010

clyde, why? I'm just curious...

clyde7995 on February 20, 2010

Since the region is frozen, everything is preserved-much like things in your refrigerator stay fresh.If they were not refrigerated many items would rot or decompose. The extreme cold will keep the buildings from much of the water damage that would occur in a more temperate region. Also they are not subject to freezing and thawing as much and do not go from hot to cold which causes expansion and contraction in structures. Peace...

Claudio Pedrazzi on February 21, 2010

thanks a lot clyde for the explanation! I love this places, I left a little bit of my heart up there. Greetings from Italy

xoomer on April 19, 2010

Thanks Stefan, it's always a pleasure after so many years, someone like you discovering and appreciating an old low-pixel photo :-)... the place has something unique, as you can read in the other comments.
