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 artic 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"

Taking Ice911 to the classroom
Because education about
climate change is critically important, Dr. Field is gearing up for
teaching! "Engineering and Climate Change"
starts this Friday afternoon at Stanford. You are welcome to attend any
or all of the lectures. Conveniently, the class starts at 4:15 PM, a
time when parking frees up on campus. The flyer detailing the
lecturers and their topics, location and timing
Alaska Trip was Amazing
Recently returned from an initial reconnaissance trip to the Arctic (Barrow and Anchorage).
What a trip! A warm welcome from scientists and the people who are
affected directly by the melting ice. I touched the ocean as far North
as one can get (in the US), launched a weather balloon (a side bonus,
while gathering info on weather conditions that will affect our
testing), gathered cost estimates for the logistics for our initial
Arctic small-scale testing, and met with many wonderful people who
shared tales of how the melting ice affects their livelihoods and
communities. This was a crucial step in the information-gathering and
collaboration-building needed to advance the work.
We attended a "Refine Your
Pitch" Workshop last week for entrants to Sustainable Silicon Valley's
accelerator. REALLY helpful - a great program!
