SEDNA consortium members published research in the journal of chemical communications

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

Survey on Future Trends in Arctic Shipping

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.  To start with a survey please click the link below or copy and paste the link to your internet browser.
