    Reflective Materials to Prevent Ice Melting - Ep 43

    Reflective Materials to Prevent Ice Melting - Ep 43

    Dive into research, materials and progress of reflective materials to prevent ice melting with Dr. Leslie Field, Founder of Bright Ice and Arctic Ice Project (https://www.arcticiceproject.org/)

    Learn about Arctic Ice Project, and Bright Ice a nonprofit that plans to inhibit glacial melting by adding a safe, reflective material to the surface of dirty ice and water to brighten (www.brighticeinitiative.org)

    Explore >10um Si microspheres such as 3M™ Glass Bubbles materials, dynamics, lifespan, , and environment savings with potential to mitigate 1.02°C rise and sea ice volume mitigation of about 8% per 1C rise, and with up to 40% increase in lifespan of ice. Even adding 1% of Arctic sea ice is enough to make a significant difference in overall reflectivity.
