Eric Ghost This album just wraps itself around you and immerses you into a world of its own. There's an abundance of beauty and warmth deep inside the ethereal Permafrost. It's a great concept for an album that is eclipsed by the perfect realization of that concept through these extraordinary tracks. Brilliant! Favorite track: Large-Scale Land Forms.

about

❚❚❚ oliveisthesun permafrost ❚❚❚ treated guitar mainline ❚❚❚

Permafrost is soil, rock or sediment that is frozen for more than two consecutive years. In areas not overlain by ice, it exists beneath a layer of soil, rock or sediment, which freezes and thaws annually and is called the "active layer". In practice, this means that permafrost occurs at an average air temperature of -2 °C or colder. Active layer thickness varies with the season, but is 0.3 to 4 meters thick (shallow along the Arctic coast; deep in southern Siberia and the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau). In the Northern Hemisphere, 24% of the ice-free land area, equivalent to 19 million square kilometers, is more or less influenced by permafrost. Most of this area is found in Siberia, northern Canada, Alaska and Greenland. Beneath the active layer annual temperature swings of permafrost become smaller with depth. The deepest depth of permafrost occurs where geothermal heat maintains a temperature above freezing. Above that bottom limit there may be permafrost, whose temperature doesn't change annually—"isothermal permafrost". Visit www.usgs.gov

Please enjoy the Permafrost sounds.
