It is increasingly clear that we need action now to ease climate change. With your help, Ice911 can implement its 3-year plan, Mission 2020, to significantly reduce global temperature rise.
Deploy our monitoring buoy on Arctic sea ice to collect data and prepare for future deployments with material. Working with the necessary permissions and the newest monitoring technology on our sea-ice buoy, Ice911 expects to collect extremely valuable data and experience deploying on the Arctic ocean.
Deploy a medium-scale test area of our material solution on Arctic ice, where our material can have the greatest impact on saving ice and lowering the risks of climate change. Refine instrumentation, modeling, and deployment methods based on information from this launch to maximize effectiveness for full-scale deployment.
Make a large-scale launch (size determined by previous year’s learnings and continued climate modeling) of reflective materials in the Fram Strait or Beaufort Gyre. A reflective boost of this size could help retain significant volumes of ice, catch southward flowing ice that otherwise melts in warmer waters every year, and reduce the climb in global temperatures
