CRYO2ICE is now on Earth Online

10 Jul 2020

A small change can lead to a revolution

On 16 July, ESA is kicking off the CRYO2ICE campaign that will raise the orbit of its CryoSat-2 satellite to periodically align with NASA’s ICESat-2. Taking place over the course of two weeks, the campaign, once successfully completed, will provide radar and lidar measurements of the same ice, at nearly the same time. The resulting data will have applications in the fields of sea ice, land ice, polar ocean currents, inland water and atmosphere.

CRYO2ICE now has its own page on Earth Online. Visit it to find out more about the campaign, access additional resources like documentation, presentations and technical papers and read articles about CRYO2ICE.
