Arctic Sea Ice and Kiting
  • Use AWES to thicken sea ice during winters.
  • Travel by kite on the sea ice.
  • Lift water and drop the water on winter sea-ice.
  • Drop sea water from aloft kited platforms onto winter sea ice/
  • Earth's north polar region and kiting.
  • Use kite systems to drag icebergs to location for purposes.

    • silica microspheres being explored by Ice911.  "hollow glass microspheres"  "Our solution can be thought of as a kind of small, fine, white beach sand that floats. In a sense, the material is a lot like snow. The reflective beads stick to ice and water on contact, and their chemical composition ensures they don't attract oil-based pollutants."

We have long shared using kites to make ice. But Dr. Steve Desch and team have focused on making ice by wind power using sea water at the artic ocean.
