An educational game developed in partnership with InHouse Visuals and the University of Exeter for the NERC to help teach children about the means of which ice flows in the Antarctic region, using real data and an approximate scientific simulation.
Ice Flows is funded as part of a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) project led by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). The project aims to investigate what may happen in the near-future in the Weddell Sea region of Antarctica and the impact changes here could have on global sea-level. Research by Hartmut Hellmer and colleagues in 2012 showed that this part of Antarctica might be subject to warmer water coming into contact with the Filchner Ice Shelf, which could lead to significant retreat of this part of the ice sheet.
- Scientific approximation of ice flow simulation.
- Real Antartic data used to create each level.
- Analytic tracked quizes to understand learning progress.
- Multiple characters to unlock and play.
