Hearts In The Ice

Bamsebu Project Goals

Social Engagement

Hearts In The Ice is a platform for social engagement. Connecting students, scientists, manufacturers, environmental organizations, and all citizens in the conversation around climate change.  Every contribution matters. Together, we can make a difference. The power of one.

Citizen Science

We will take observations and gather data in collaboration with the Norwegian Polar Institute, Norwegian Meterological Institute, NASA, The Scripps Institute of Oceanography. Our findings will add to existing research in the Arctic. Two of these projects will be mirrored in Antarctica with Polar Latitudes’ Citizen Science Program.

Technology Testing

While at Bamsebu, we will field test cutting edge technology in one of the world’s most extreme environments.  We will use solar and wind energy, satellite communication, and electric snowmobiles.  We will discover what is possible in minimizing our carbon footprint.

Global Effects

The rate of warming in the Arctic is about twice as high as the global average. When snow and ice melt a darker surface is exposed, causing more solar energy to be absorbed in the region. Glaciers melt and contribute to rising sea levels. Thawing permafrost contributes to release of greenhouse gases that are presently “locked away” underground.
