Test Pond in Minneapolis, MN

With every successive season of experimenting on this pond, we saw the importance of isolating the water areas to accurately quantify the various materials tested, which is why Ice911 painstakingly segmented the pond in Minneapolis for the past several seasons of experimentation. In the most recent season, this allowed the team to leave two quarters of the pond for testing two materials and two quarters as a control. In addition, we perfected our technique for distributing material over the ice and standardized our containment size for future experiments.
