Arctic Reflections, bv

Arctic Reflections, bv (AR, is a Dutch start-up aimed at restoring Arctic ice. AR seeks to counter sea ice loss employing a technique known as ice thickening. The thickness of existing ice is increased during winter months by pumping seawater onto the surface. Thicker ice is expected to last longer during the following summer months and increase solar radiation reflection, thereby reducing warming. CIEIF’s funding will assist AR in conducting a full assessment of impacts of an initial small-scale field test slated for the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard in early 2024, as well as retaining a consulting firm for predicting impacts of the technique at potential test sites in Nunavut, Canada.
