Breaking the ice at European Polar Science Week

The polar regions have experienced the most rapid rates of warming in recent years. Expected consequences due to this warming include the loss of sea ice, threats to wildlife, increased emissions and extreme weather. In response to this, ESA and the European Commission have come together to organise the first-ever European Polar Science Week dedicated to discussing how Earth observation can be utilised to monitor and protect this fragile environment.
