Although not designed to deliver information on ice, ESA's Earth Explorer SMOS satellite can detect thin sea-ice. Since its cousin, CryoSat, is better at measuring thicker ice scientists have found a way of using these missions together to yield an even clearer picture of the changing Arctic.

Five satellites spanning two decades have revealed variations in the timing and pace of glacial retreat in West Antarctica. Some glaciers' thinning spreads up to three times faster than on neighbouring tributaries, and was offset by decades.

ESA's CryoSat satellite has found that the Arctic has one of the lowest volumes of sea ice of any November, matching record lows in 2011 and 2012. Early winter growth of ice in the Arctic has been about 10% lower than usual.

ESA has recently decided to reprocess all GOP L1 and L2 Geophysical Ocean Products (GOP) from the end of the CryoSat commissioning phase (November 2010) to the installation of the current CryoSat Ocean Processor version (March 2015).

Since the beginning of the CryoSat mission, ESA has supervised several roll campaigns during which the satellite rolls left and right in orbit in order to perform end-to-end calibration of the interferometer over the ocean. All of the SARin data (FBR, L1B, L2I, L2) acquired during these roll campaigns have now been made available to all users.

All users interested in participating to the event are kindly reminded that the deadline for abstract submission is 04 December 2016
To guarantee that the quality of the CryoSat products are always at their best, a number of calibrations are applied to its measurements which also take into consideration the ageing of the satellite's main payload instrument, SIRAL.

With a helicopter the sole feature on the vast expanse of ice and her only way back to warmth and safety, polar scientist Anna Hogg must have thought, "What on Earth am I doing out here?" as she set to taking ice samples.
