The Arctic ice cap is melting, and with it goes our future. By using the method of Marine Cloud Brightening (MCB), we are focused on the acceleration of the development and implementation of MCB method.

What is Marine Cloud

MCB mimics the sprays formed above the sea, resulting in brighter clouds. Successful application of this principle would cool down the designated areas beneath and help buy us more time.

The sprays carry more nuclei which are expected to give a greater number of smaller water droplets. This makes the clouds appear brighter and reflect more sunlight; surfaces underneath will have cooler conditions.

Why are we

  • For every centimetre of sea level rise, the sea engulfs 0.50-1.00m of land
  • The extent of sea ice in the Arctic has already declined by more than 43% since 1979
  • Between 2030 and 2050, climate change is expected to cause approximately 250,000 additional deaths related to malnutrition, malaria, Diarrhoea and heat stress
    World Health Organisation (WHO)
  • If unchecked, the cost of climate change could reach 5-10% of global gross domestic product (GDP) over the next 50 years; the human suffering associated with this is far beyond our grasp

We need to
buy time

Despite good intentions and solemn promises to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it is now highly likely that we will fail to keep the global temperature rise below 1.5°C, or even below 2°C by 2050.

We need to buy time and concentrate our efforts on greenhouse gas removal and reducing emissions.

What we are doing at
Refreeze the Arctic

Our goal is to fund and coordinate research into MCB modelling, alongside laboratory and field experiments at various research institutions of international repute. We aim to create an MCB-research funding community and to make the MCB research results available to the public.

The aim is to conduct modelling, lab, and field experiments with coordinated research, as well as leading the drive in creating a funding community.
