Latest CryoSat Stories
Offering new insights into our fragile polar regions, ESA’s CryoSat mission has provided three consecutive years of Arctic sea-ice thickness measurements, which show that the ice continues to thin.
The largest Living Planet Symposium ever held has begun. Scientists and users are gathering in Edinburgh, UK, this week to present their latest satellite findings on Earth’s environment and climate based.
A vast crater has been found in Antarctica's icy surface by the European Space Agency's CryoSat satellite. The crater was formed, scientists believe, when a lake lying under about 2 miles of ice drained suddenly.
New observations using satellites have confirmed University of Washington researchers' analysis the Arctic Ocean sea ice really is thinning.
Scientists from across Europe will be gathering together to try and choose ESA's next Earth Explorer mission.
The European Space Agency's (ESA) ice mission is giving scientists a better look at oceans, coastal areas, inland water bodies and land.
This year, satellites saw the extent of Arctic sea ice hit a record low since measurements began in the 1970s. ESA’s SMOS and CryoSat satellites are now taking a deeper look by measuring the volume of the sea-ice cover.
Sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is likely to hit its lowest next week and then keep on shrinking. Scientists at the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center say data shows that the sea ice coverage is tracking below the previous record low, set in 2007.
Arctic sea ice is melting away far more rapidly than experts had previously predicted, with more than 215 cubic miles (900 cubic kilometers) worth disappearing from the Arctic Ocean over the past year.
