Seed reserve, additional measures in Norway for safety


There are seeds saved from 5,000 plant species from around the world. Dried and frozen so that they can withstand hundreds of years. If a global war or global warming threatens the key plants the world hinges on, the seeds will exist within a giant fridge, in the depths of a mountain on the Arctic island of Svalbard in Norway. But last year, water could penetrate the global seed reserve tunnel, threatening the treasure held there. Temperatures as exceedingly high in the past year, made the ice melt by filling the tunnel entrance with water. The seeds were not damaged but now Norway has decided to take action and improve the defense. The reserve, a kind of Noah's Ark for Plants, will now have new, water-resistant walls in the tunnel and drainage channels outside it. Although many countries maintain the stocks of key varieties, the global seed reserve acts as a support. If a country's seeds are lost as a result of a natural disaster or man-made catastrophe, those stored in the Arctic can be used to regenerate. The scientists there call the reserve as the most important room in the world. The Norwegian government has explained that the cause for building a reserve in Svalbard has been the belief that ice would be permanent. But the problems arose last October, when the temperatures instead of -10 degrees were around zero. Consequently, mountain drainage channels have been opened to prevent water collection around the tunnel entry and water resistant walls that will provide additional protection to the seeds. Meanwhile, Statsbygg, the managing agency, has launched a research and development project to monitor Svalbard's ice creams.
