Project

The Siku Project (UK)

Goal: This wonderful project, working with the Inuit people, is building a machine that can rebuild melting Arctic ice, by harnessing wind power to pull water from underneath existing ice to the surface, where it will freeze as a new layer.

We were privileged last Saturday to work with the Anglesey Sea Zoo on a Fun Day there to raise awareness of our Arctic Ice Preservation machines. Two of the existing designs were demonstrated on the beach . .. and a good day was had by all!
Here's a summary video: https://vimeo.com/279610928

As a key stepping stone in designing a machine suitable for trials in the Arctic, we're embarking on a new phase of research . .. hopefully supported by the Crowd-funding campaign: https://startsomegood.com/preserve-arctic-ice

Our sub-project focussing on Permafrost Preservation has a new name and web- presence:

In terms of effectiveness and value of the ice-thickening machine, we're looking to use them where a small amount of input can make a huge difference (chaos theory in action) and/or where the impact of reduced ice can be significant in human terms.
One possible application would be to help reduce thawing of permafrost, for example where a railway line runs over it.
If you have expertise in any of these area, please comment with a link to your work. Thank you.
