Arctic ice is melting fast, transforming coastlines and multiplying risks around the world.
Since the United States assumed Chairmanship of the eight-nation Arctic Council for the period 2015-2017, the U.S. State Department has highlighted how ice melting in the Arctic affects people, infrastructure and ecosystems worldwide, multiplying risks around the world.
The cryosphere forms an integral part of the climate system of the Earth. Measuring the properties of the seasonal and perennial snow cover properties is therefore essential in understanding interactions and feedback mechanisms related to the cryosphere.
