WHAT WE DO FOR THE WORLD

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 is here.

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.

SSV Entry

We attended a "Refine Your Pitch" Workshop last week for entrants to Sustainable Silicon Valley's accelerator.  REALLY helpful - a great program! 

New website! What do you think?

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. You can email comments here about the changes to the site.

Papers submitted for Fall AGU

Ice911 researchers have submitted abstracts for the Fall AGU, to add to the presentations already made to climate experts at the 2012 and 2013 Fall AGU meetings.

NASA conversations continue

Dr. Field made a presentation to NASA and guests on June 6, and our conversations continue.
