We use ecosystem-friendly technologies to mitigate the effects of global warming. Our materials can slow Arctic melt by increasing the reflectivity and reducing the melt rate of arctic ice.
Our techniques have been developed through decades of engineering expertise and years of field research. We are an advance-stage non-profit research startup—we need your support to refine our deployment techniques. Please spread the word—like us on Facebook and if you can, donate.
BUYING TIME FOR GREEN
"The cost of adaptation to sea level rise is estimated in the billions of dollars per year for many coastal cities; It could cost trillions after 2050"
Scientists alarmed by rapidly shrinking Arctic ice cap
"Some climate scientists are now warning that an ice-free summer Arctic Ocean could appear within a few years—more than a decade sooner than existing climate models have predicted"
Ice911's efforts to artificially boost polar ice formation (ship and crew not included).
"The data from a small-scale experiment show that water with the [Ice 911] additive freezes 1.45 times faster, lasts 1.77 times longer in sun and has a higher albedo than the control"

Ice911 was a 2014 SSV Finalist
Research participated as a Finalist in Sustainable Silicon
Valley's *amazing* SSV WEST Summit WEST Summit's accelerator program. Fantastic event.
Ice911 at the Cleantech Open
Ice911 participated as a 2013 SemiFinalist Alum at the2014 Cleantech Open Global Forum. Terrific program.
Taking Ice911 to the Classroom
Because education about
climate change is critically important, Dr. Field teaches "Engineering and Climate Change" at Stanford
each Fall Quarter. The quarter has ended, and the lectures should soon be posted to YouTube by Stanford's SCPD. The flyer detailing the
lecturers and their topics is here.
Alaska Trips Extraordinary
Dr. Field and Mr. Chetty have made initial reconnaissance trips to the Arctic (Barrow, Fairbanksand Anchorage) over the past few months.
We received warm welcomes from scientists and the people who are
affected directly by the melting ice. We started to build collaborations and gathered weather info and cost estimates for the logistics for our upcoming initial
Arctic small-scale technology demonstrations, and met with many wonderful people who
shared tales of how the melting ice affects their livelihoods and
Ice911 presented at Fall AGU
Ice911 presented a technical poster at the Fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, adding to the presentations already made to climate experts at the 2012 and 2013 Fall AGU meetings, and at various climate-related workshops.
NASA conversations continue
Dr. Field has made several presentations to NASA this year, and our conversations continue.
Website helped by GEM Students
Our website was redesigned with the help of a team of outstanding Stanford students in Prof. Kosnik's Global Entrepreneurship and Marketing class, as well as our social media Ice911 collaborators and our web designer.
