Two previously untapped streams of satellite data from ESA's CryoSat mission were used by Scripps Institution of Oceanography scientists at UC San Diego and their colleagues to create the new gravity map of the world's seaflor, exposing thousands of previously u
ESA’s CryoSat satellite has found a vast crater in Antarctica’s icy surface for which scientists believe was left behind when a lake lying under about 3 km of ice suddenly drained.
The study, published recently in Geophysical Research Letters,
Satellite measurements show we are heading for another year of below-average ice cover in the Arctic. As sea ice melts during the summer months, two major shipping routes have opened in the Arctic Ocean.In 2008 satellites saw that the Northwest Passage and the Northern
