Barrow, Alaska

Ice911 worked with the local Native American population of Barrow, Alaska to identify the best possible testing site of its first Arctic test. To get the flavor of the place, we’ll share that one of the requirements for working on such remote Alaskan terrain includes employing a local polar bear guard! Once the site was identified in the BEO (Barrow Experimental Observatory) area, we set up our materials areas surrounded by floatable oil booms, and instrumentation, and found our Ice-Aid material to be extremely effective in preserving ice in the Arctic.  We've returned to Barrow for a follow-up deployment with improved instrumentation to further demonstrate the effectiveness of our Ice-Aid in preserving Arctic Ice.
