    CryoTEMPO-EOLIS Products Now Available for Iceland, Svalbard, and the Canadian Arctic

    Land-ice is declining globally, raising sea levels worldwide and impacting glacial risks and access to fresh-water in high-mountain glaciers regions. Land-ice monitoring via Earth Observation methods in general, and altimetry in particular, are essential for tracking the current status of ice volume change and its evolution as climate continues to evolve and mitigating actions are being pursued.

    CryoSat's Swath Processing Technique

    For more than 30 years, satellite radar altimetry has been used to continuously monitor the state of the cryosphere and to investigate the impact of global warming on sea level rise. Owing to this, maps of ice sheet elevation and elevation change were derived.
