SEDNA Project News
SEDNA consortium members from University College London published research in the journal of Ocean Engineering. The research focused on fluid structure interaction of large scale ice sheet in waves, and featured inputs from SEDNA technical lead Prof Giles Thomas
Participants from the National Maritime College of Ireland, published a conference paper at the International Maritime Science Conference
Participants from the National Maritime College of Ireland, published a conference paper at the International Maritime Science Conference, 2019. The paper focused on applying Expert Arctic Icebreaker knowledge to mainstream Arctic Shipping, and featured inputs from Senior NMCI Researcher Robert Lynch
SEDNA consortium members from University College London published research in the journal of chemical communications. The research investigated Infusion of solid perfluoroalkanes into polydimethylsiloxane gels provides a simple route to regenerating de-icing surfaces, with low adhesion strength from the lower inherent cohesive energy of the perfluoroalkanes, and featured inputs from Prof Kwang Choy and Dr Adam Clancy
SEDNA consortium members from the UK MET Office completed a conference presentation at the Arctic Frontiers conference, Tromso, Norway. The research focused on SEDNA Seasonal Predictions of the ice-edge with Glosea5, and featured UK MET Office Scientist Dr Nicolas Fournier
You are invited to participate in an online survey aiming to identify future trends in Arctic shipping, organised and conducted by Prof. Giles Thomas and Dr Dimitris Stagonas at University College London, Department of Mechanical Engineering. This study is part of SEDNA ("Safe maritime operations under extreme conditions: the Arctic case"), an EU Horizon 2020 research project that is developing an innovative and integrated risk-based approach to safe Arctic navigation, ship design and operation.
The survey is very brief and will only take less than 10 minutes to complete. Following the links below, you will find three different surveys on, Arctic Climate Change (focusing on Arctic sea-ice), Arctic Trade and Arctic Resources. Please complete the survey closest to your area of expertise. Note that you can complete more than one survey should you wish to.
