Reflections on Arctic Ice

April 20, 2021 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 am

Peter Wadhams

Dr. Leslie Field and Dr. Peter Wadhams will discuss Arctic sea ice, its rapid disappearance, and solutions to mitigate this issue.


Please join the Arctic Ice Project for a special webinar on April 20th at 12:00 p.m. PDT. During this ground breaking webinar, Dr. Leslie Field, Founder and CTO of the Arctic Ice Project and Adjunct Lecturer at Stanford University, will be co-panelist with Peter Wadhams ScD, who is professor emeritus of Ocean Physics at the University of Cambridge (UK). Dr. Wadhams is best known for his vast work studying Arctic ice and more recently for his appearance in the documentary, “Ice on Fire” with Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as his popular book “A Farewell to Ice”.

Peter Wadhams is the UK’s most experienced sea ice scientist with more than 50 expeditions to both polar regions. During this time he worked on ice camps, icebreakers, aircraft, and, uniquely, Royal Navy submarines (making six submerged voyages to the North Pole). In addition to all this he has been awarded the W.S. Bruce Prize of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (1977), the UK Polar Medal (1987) and the Italgas Prize for Environmental Sciences (1990).

This webinar will be an amazing chance to learn about the science behind the Arctic Ice Project and what their scientists are doing to combat climate change! This is a fantastic, once in a lifetime, opportunity to engage with experts on climate change, arctic sea ice, and a hopeful and promising solution. You don’t want to miss this, so please RSVP.

Don’t forget at any time you can become a Global Champion through a tax deductible donation to the Arctic Ice Project and our collective mission to restore the Arctic’s ice and polar habitats.

This webinar is being offered free to the public, but all donations will bring vital funds for the work of Arctic Ice Project. A minimum suggested gift of $100.00 is greatly appreciated. Donations made to the Arctic Ice Project will go towards a scientific collaboration between Norway’s SINTEF ocean and the Arctic Ice Project! Please visit Arctic Ice Project to support their vital cause. You can also keep up to date with the Arctic Ice Project by following them on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
