The Arctic Ocean archipelago north of Northern Europe, east of Greenland and northeast of Iceland is Svalbard (pronounced ˈsʋɑlbɑɖ in Norwegian). Located midway between mainland Norway and the North Pole, the archipelago ranges from 74° to 81° north latitude, and from 10° to 35° east longitude. Spitsbergen is the largest island, followed by Nordaustlandet and Edgeøya. Longyearbyen is the main economic and population center of Svalbard.
Svalbard’s weather is moderated by the North Atlantic Current and is relatively warmer compared to other areas in its high latitude. The winter months sees normal temps in the range of just above 0 to 10°F (−18 to −12 °C). The summer weather is around a brisk 40 °F (5 °C).
