Is it possible for permafrost to preserve smell?


Answer by  embockjr (709)

Smell, or more correctly odor, is due to gaseous products in the air. In most cases, a very low temperature reduces, or eliminates, the gaseous products coming from objects. So, if you store something at low temperatures, the reduction of gaseous products will increase the amount of time that an object will "smell".

Permafrost can preserve other things such as wood, organic matter, and such so it is believed that it can also preserve smell.
