THE ARCTIC SAVER TOWER
Climate protection and species migration
Designer: Yiyang Xu , Jingyi Ye
Due to climate change, global warming and other effects, the number of disappearances of sea ice is much larger than that predicted in the simulation experiments. Similarly, the number of disappearances of sea ice in summer has risen sharply. In September 2007, the sea ice area decreased by 39% from the 1979-2000 average, the lowest point since satellite monitoring began in 1979. The intensification of the climate warming has led to a sharp decrease in ice sheets in Greenland and the Arctic Ocean and an increase in heat absorbed by the oceans as a result of melting sea ice, which is the evidence of the beginning of a vicious ecological cycle caused by increased climate warming.
Consequently, protecting the polar glaciers and covering the Arctic permafrost is the ultimate goal of the construction of the Arctic Protection Tower for the balanced development of the local biological chain.
To extend the melting season is the main purpose of this program. In each April, the ice begins to melt in the Arctic when the outer frame of the Arctic Saver Tower begins rotating, the unit of which under the water surface also start on storing water while the internal sea water begin to freeze when those units above the water surface are exposed to cold air during rotation. The ice storage unit is placed outside when the outer frame rotates to sea level, and the ice will melt which absorbs the heat in the atmosphere and slows the rise of temperature, so that the melting period is prolonged. In the meantime, those external units will move to a fixed position while absorbing atmospheric heat, providing a foothold for a small number of polar bears that begin to migrate from May to June. In September, the freezing period of the Arctic begin when the Arctic Saver Tower will move to the vicinity where has just iced up. The sprinkler installed on the outer frame will spray treated seawater to the ice, and, by controlling the spraying direction and distance through the water pressure and the rotation of the outer frame, the ice will be thickened while the melting period is thus also prolonged.
