National Snow and Ice Data Center
At this public research institute with a very large and popular web site, my role was to lead improvements to User Experience, Information Architecture, and Content Strategy.
NSIDC are experts in satellite data about snow and ice, and a leader in the field of snow and ice related scientific research. Their data and content about the melting Arctic sea ice is eagerly sought after by the press, academics, and educators.
