Learn about the role of satellite ‘Earth observation’ (EO) technology in monitoring the Earth's Cryosphere and the data it produces
In this course we will introduce you to the role of satellite ‘Earth observation’ (EO) technology in monitoring the Earth’s Cryosphere and the data it produces. The Cryosphere is the portion of the Earth’s surface where water exists in solid form as glaciers, sea ice, ice caps, and areas of snow.
The first week will introduce you to EO and provide an introduction to the Cryosphere, and the challenges of monitoring it. The next 3 weeks will focus on sea ice, ice sheets & ice shelves, and mountain glaciers, rivers & lake ice and snow.
