CryoSat determines variations in the thickness of continental ice sheets and marine ice cover. Europe's first ice mission is an advanced radar altimeter specifically designed to monitor the most dynamic sections of Earth's cryosphere.
A new study entitled “Coastal current intrusions from satellite altimetry” has just been published in the journal Remote Sensing. This study comes from an international collaboration between the European Space Agency (ESA), MIO (Fr), CNR (It) and Serco (It) with the goal of monitoring coastal intrusions into the Gulf of Lion by analyzing multi-mission Satellite Altimetry data with Machine Learning methods
CryoSat - ESA's ice mission - recently celebrated ten years in space, during which it has provided invaluable data for research. To mark the anniversary we put together an infographic about the mission and its many achievements.
