CryoSat-2 Yields First Reults on Ice Thickness in the Arctic region

Back in April, the European Space Agency (ESA) launched a satellite named CryoSat-2 for the purpose of measuring ice thickness in the Arctic region. Although the satellite is still undergoing checkout and calibration, the first results from CryoSat-2 were released to the participants at the Living Planet Symposium. The symposium is being held in Bergen, Norway this year, from 28 June to 2 July 2010 and organized with the support of the Norwegian Space Centre.
