Ice Sheet Thickness from Satellite Observations

IceThicknessYet another exploration of how remote sensing by satellites is helping researchers learn more about what’s happening here on Earth. The beauty of it is that satellites work around the clock making images and taking measurements to degrees of accuracy we could never imagine in the past.

Put all those snapshots and measurements together over time and we end up with a reality far better than any model. This video shows quite well what is happening to ice in the Arctic and Antarctic: Ice Sheet Thickness from Satellite Observations – brought to you by the European Space Agency.
