Summary

In order to help protect personnel living or working in the Arctic, this project was designed to identify, track and communicate hazards associated with sea ice entrapment of vessels, structural damage to vessels and infrastructure, risk to personnel and assets due to detachment of landfast ice, and the limitation of oil spill response. In 2014, the Sea-Ice Hazard project contributed to a rescue mission in Barrow, Alaska which saw the safe recovery of personnel and equipment from drifting ice with the aid of sea ice radar.
