Change in the Arctic

Satellites play a vital role in monitoring the rapid changes taking place in the Arctic. Tracking ice lost from the worlds glaciers, ice sheets and frozen land shows that Earth is losing ice at an accelerating rate. Currently more than a trillion tonnes of ice is lost each year. The sooner Earths temperature is stabilised, the more manageable the impacts of ice loss will be.
