10 hours of ambient noise from an "icebreaker in the frozen arctic"

Imagine the horror of being trapped in a hostile landscape surrounded by snowflakes that were once objects of amusement but now form a blizzard of menacing proportions. Then smile because you're not a fascist, and are merely stuck on a polar icebreaking vessel for 10 hours.

10 hours video of Arctic ambience with frozen ocean, ice craking, snow falling, icebreaker idling and distand howling wind sound. Natural white noise sounds generated by the wind and snow falling, combined with deep low frequencies with delta waves from the powerful icebreaker idling engines, recorded at 96 kHz - 24 bit and designed for relaxation, meditation, study and sleep.

Update: The vessel seen in the photo is RV Lance from the Norwegian Polar Institute. (Thanks, Richard!)

NOTE: Not really a 10 hour video of an icebreaker, but a looping GIF with an ambient mix of real and artificial audio.
