Arctic Ice Project

Buying time for humanity to make significant strides toward decarbonization can serve as an essential strategy to avoid a global catastrophe.

Mission

Arctic Ice Project is a nonprofit dedicated to stabilizing the global climate by safely preserving and restoring Arctic sea ice through research, development and deployment of innovative solutions. The Arctic is warming nearly four times faster than the rest of the globe resulting in critical loss of reflective Arctic sea ice. Continued accelerated ice melt will increase the severity and frequency of climate related hazards and lead to an existential global crisis. Arctic ice reflects solar heat and energy out of the Earths atmosphere. AIP proposes enhancing the ability of Arctic sea ice to reflect sunlight to reduce warming and stabilize weather patterns, temperatures, and sea levels by deploying a thin layer of reflective microspheres atop ice to mimic and enhance natural reflectivity.

LABORATORY RESEARCH

With the goal to determine the safety of potential deployment, AIP partners with a leading marine technology and bio-marine research laboratory in Norway. AIPs research is producing important and publishable results. The overarching goal is to understand the fate and distribution of hollow glass microspheres (HGMs) in the Arctic Ocean and the extent to which, if any, HGMs might be harmful to indigenous species in the water column. All studies have been conducted in controlled laboratory conditions using Arctic ocean water and simulated ocean and atmospheric turbulence. Such laboratory studies will provide a critical understanding of possible toxicological effects of HGMs on a robust representative sample of indigenous ocean species. The objective of laboratory research is to determine for the scientific community, permitting authorities and concerned Indigenous peoples that a future test-bed deployment of HGMs to protect sea ice in approved Arctic ocean waters would be safe.

Population(s) Served

With the goal of determining the efficacy of potential deployment, AIP partners with with a world-class climate modeling team to execute the computer modeling and simulations required to support publication of the effectiveness of our methodology in targeted strategic areas of the Arctic Sea. Global climate models are large, complex supercomputer programs requiring teams of researchers to develop and refine over time. The modeling team conducts numerical simulations to see the effects of spreading highly reflective silica microspheres in targeted areas of the Arctic Sea. The intent is to identify optimal locations and time for material deployment and evaluate large scale climate impacts. Results to date show HGM application decreases both Arctic average surface temperatures and global average surface temperatures. Our climate modeling work has been presented at annual conferences and manuscripts have been published in peer-reviewed journals.

Population(s) Served

The goal of educating people about the role the Arctic plays in influencing climate change is of paramount importance in AIPs collective efforts to address one of the most pressing global challenges of our time. The Arctic region serves as a crucial indicator and driver of climate change, with its rapidly warming temperatures, melting ice, and impacts on global weather patterns. Understanding the Arctic's significance helps individuals and policymakers comprehend the far-reaching consequences of climate change, from rising sea levels to altered weather patterns and biodiversity loss. It underscores the urgency of taking meaningful action to mitigate the effects of climate change, making public awareness and informed decision-making essential for a sustainable future.
