A little about SmartICE
SmartICE is an award-winning technological innovation for the North. We are the world’s first climate change adaptation tool to integrate traditional knowledge of sea ice with advanced data acquisition and remote monitoring technology. Our system combines these approaches to provide invaluable, data-driven insights into sea-ice thickness and local ice conditions, in near real-time. We embrace a social enterprise business model that aims to expand opportunities for economic and social development in northern markets while preserving local cultures and lifestyles. Our tools offer information that support better decision-making. To learn more about what we do visit www.smartice.org
