Latest CryoSat Stories
Twice a year, members of NASA's Operation IceBridge science team meet to discuss the mission's goals and progress, to define plans for upcoming field campaigns and get feedback from the scientific community.
According to a new study from the European Space Agency, ice in northern Alaska’s lakes during winter months is on the decline. Twenty years of satellite radar images in the study show how shifts in our climate are affecting high-latitude regions.
Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier is now in an irreversible retreat, according to a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change.
New measurements taken by the ESA's CryoSat show the volume of Arctic sea ice has risen by about 50 percent compared to last year.
With news out of San Francisco this week, at the autumn meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), we learned scientists have incorrectly estimated the amount of ice being lost on the polar continent of Antarctica. This environmental faux pas directly affects the estimates on global sea level rise as well.
ESA’s CryoSat satellite measured the storm surge from the recent North Sea storms, as high waters passed through the Kattegat sea between Denmark and Sweden.
For the first time, a NASA airborne campaign will measure changes in the height of the Greenland Ice Sheet and surrounding Arctic sea ice produced by a single season of summer melt.
The launch of ESA’s magnetic field mission from Plesetsk, Russia, has been postponed by about a week.
The ESA announced on Monday its Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer mission has come to an end.
With launch just a month away, ESA’s Swarm constellation has been fueled. Engineers will soon be focusing on the careful task of attaching the three identical satellites to the upper stage of the rocket for simultaneous release into orbit around Earth.
