Extreme Climates

Oymyakon

Dallol

(Russia)

(Ethiopia)

By Casimir Burman

The whopping record low temperature in the world is held by Oymyakon, Russia with –96.16°F!

This small town, referred to as the “Gate of Hell”, has temperatures exceeding 94 degrees F, on a regular basis!

The main factor why Oymyakon is the coldest place in the world is that it is just 214 miles away from the Arctic Circle!

The blazing temperature in Dallol is partly due to low elevation, low seasonality impact, no nighttime cooling, and the noxious fumes from their toxic volcanoes.

The brave kids in Oymyakon only skip school if the temperature drops below -60 degrees!

I found this link and book to be very interesting, colorful, and very informational.
