C41A:
Advances in Altimetry of the Polar Regions I Posters


Session ID#: 7680

Session Description:
Advances in satellite and airborne altimetry have transformed our capacity to study the polar regions, and the past three decades of altimeter measurements have painted an altogether new picture of how Earth’s ice sheets, sea ice, and polar oceans evolve. As global temperatures have risen, so too have rates of snowfall, ice melting, and sea level rise, and each of these changes impacts upon the neighbouring land, marine, and atmospheric environments.  Altimeter measurements have proved central to our awareness and understanding of Arctic and Antarctic environmental change. This session brings together studies of the polar regions that utilise measurements developed from satellite and airborne altimeter platforms to examine the complementarity of approaches across scientific disciplines, and to advance our understanding of the polar regions. We welcome submissions based on assessments of past, current, and future missions and on the application of altimeter datasets to observe and model polar environmental change.
