Siberia is a region of the Southern Oval that is often described as a frozen wasteland. However, the planet's geological activity has made it play a key role in ending Nuclear Winter by the means of a uranium flood basalt eruption.

GeologyEdit

Siberian TrapsEdit

Siberia was noted for causing many flood basalt eruptions, which had led to the extinctions of many inhabitants of the land before human civilization. A flood basalt eruption is when a plumage of the Earth's mantle rises up to the crust & turns the land into a sea of lava.

Uranium oreEdit

Over time between the last flood basalt eruption & the beginning of Nuclear Summer, a giant amount of rock & crystals compressed into tiny radioactive crystals of uranium. One crystal could have the power to run every building in Wildwood with every appliance turned on for a whole year.

Nuclear ThawingEdit

Main article: Nuclear Thawing

In 85Y, a nuclear bomb test had gone awry as the mushroom clouds had spewed nuclear isotopes into the upper atmosphere. The rising of these chemicals took about 3-5 years to reach the greenhouse gases & ozone layer. Once up there, the isotopes caused the greenhouse gases to accelerate, generating a 5 year period of never-ending summer, from 90-95Y. The year summer ended, the greenhouse gases broke apart & the Earth cooled dramatically. This caused 5 years of winter. The winter appeared to end in 100Y when a flood basalt eruption in Siberia began. However, the uranium ore stood between the lava & the surface & the uranium was forced out of the ground, generating radiation that produced more greenhouse gases & warmed the Earth to the point that the natural balance was restored.
