By combining 25 years of ESA satellite data, scientists have discovered that warming ocean waters have caused the ice to thin so rapidly that 24% of the glacier ice in West Antarctica is now affected.

Unfortunately ice is a hot topic when it comes to understanding and monitoring how this fragile component of the Earth system is being affected by climate change. Scientists, therefore, go to great lengths to study changes happening in the remote icy reaches of our planet – a subject that is being discussed in detail at this week's Living Planet Symposium in Italy.
Following the successful CryoSat Quality Working Group Meeting held from 26 to 28 November 2018, the upcoming CryoSat Ice Baseline-D data products have been further refined.
The Baseline-D ice chain will be transferred to operation on 27 May 2019 and will include several evolutions as well as a new data format (NetCDF).
We are glad to inform the CryoSat scientific community that the reprocessed CryoSat Ocean Baseline C data for all of 2011 has been published on the Science Server and is available for download.
