"Ice Bound: Our Reporter Boards An Icebreaker For 6 Weeks. Here's Why"

"An E&E News reporter spends six weeks on an icebreaker with scientists who are unraveling the mysteries of the Arctic."

"The remote Siberian village of Oymyakon, Russia — one of the coldest settlements in the world — is accustomed to braving subzero temperatures. But in January 2018, a severe cold snap vaulted the tiny town and its 500 residents into international headlines.

Local temperatures sank to a bone-chilling minus 88 degrees Fahrenheit.

It wasn't quite a record-breaker. The all-time coldest temperature for the area occurred in 2013, at a staggering minus 98 F. But it wasn't far off."
