Arctic sea ice last month was around 50 per cent higher in volume compared with a year earlier, following a recovery in area this summer, the European Space Agency (ESA) said today.
The West Antarctic ice sheet appears to be shedding far more ice than a few years ago, according to climate research unveiled Wednesday.
Arctic sea ice, which has been declining in area by unprecedented amounts in summer, is also falling in volume, the European Space Agency (ESA) said today.
An international team of scientists has discovered that Arctic sea ice volume has decreased by 36 percent during autumn and 9 percent during winter between 2003 and 2012.
After almost a year and a half of operations, CryoSat has yielded its first seasonal variation map of Arctic sea-ice thickness.
Reports indicate that the European Space Agency (ESA) is about to launch CryoSat on February 25, which would be the most sophisticated satellite ever to investigate Earth’s ice fields and map ice thickness over water and land.
