  Verkhoyansk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Verkhoyansk (Russian: Верхоя́нск) is a town in the Sakha Republic, Russia, situated on the Yana River, near the Arctic Circle, 675 km from Yakutsk.
There is river port, an airport, a fur-collecting depot, and the center of a reindeer-raising area.
Verkhoyansk is noted chiefly for its exceptionally low winter temperatures, with a January average of −58°F (−50°C).

 Care2 Connect - The cold war at the arctic Circle
The lowest temperature ever recorded in Verkhoyansk is documented on a fl granite plaque at the weather station built by German-born Siberia expert Alexander Bunge: minus 67.8 degrees Celsius (minus 90 degrees Fahrenheit), measured by a meteorologist exiled to Verkhoyansk on January 15, 1885.
Verkhoyansk is a memorial to human hubris and mankind's capacity for suffering, a splinter of civilization stuck in the frozen Taiga, all that remains of a grandiose belief in progress.
The reality in modern-day Verkhoyansk means retirees spending a third of their pensions on firewood, despite already receiving a subsidy for about the same amount from the local government.

 The Coldest Town: Life in Siberia's Pole of Cold - Bryan Alexander
Verkhoyansk, situated on the bank of the Yana River in the Russian republic of Yakutia, has the distinction of being the coldest place in the Northern Hemisphere.
Though Verkhoyansk competes with another town in Yakutia, Oimyakon, for the dubious privilege of being the coldest town in the world, most climatologists agree that Verkhoyansk is the winner.
The reason Verkhoyansk gets so much colder than the North Pole is that it lies in the middle of a very large landmass, which cools much more efficiently than does the Arctic Ocean.

The overall structure of the South Verkhoyansk, with the oldest rocks exposed in the foreland and progressively younger, but more intensely metamorphosed units in the hinterland is determined by the inversion of the thick upper Paleozoic clastic wedge that lay a adjacent to the ancient Siberian margin prior to the onset of deformation.

In a sense, this vast orogenic belt is the mirror image of the North American Cordillera, yet because of its remote and inaccessible location its tectonic history is poorly understood, particularly to the Western geological community.
One of these transects would be located in the Southern Verkhoyansk and one in the Northern Verkhoyansk thus allowing us to evaluate the differences in structural evolution from different portions of the orogen.

The Verkhoyansk Range and the thrust-and-fold belt of the same name is located to the east of the Siberian craton.
This is in general agreement with sedimentologic and tectonic subsidence studies that assume that the continent-oceanic transition lies fairly close to the frontal thrusts separating the Verkhoyansk belt and the Siberian craton.
Two interpretations are possible: (1) a significant part of the Verkhoyansk Range is underlain by oceanic-like crust, or (2) the Verkhoyansk Range is underlain by different continental blocks, in part, probably, of non-Siberian origin.

The entire landmass (and continental shelves) located east of the Verkhoyansk fold-and-thrust belt was added to the Siberian craton since the Late Jurassic (Parfenov and Natal’in, 1977).
This area is also remarkable for the extensive and varied magmatism which accompanied the accretionary process and for its complex structural patterns including a major oroclinal loop at its core.
Detailed structural analysis, and 40Ar/ 39Ar geochronology are necessary to constrain the kinematics and timing of deformation associated with the final collision, and to correctly interpret the structures imaged by the proposed seismic line.
