About Cryo2Ice


Cryo2Ice is a campaign that increased the ground track intersection of the CryoSat-2 and ICESat-2 satellites over short time intervals. The orbit change of CryoSat-2 is an enabling step for applications that require co-incident data, such as measuring snow depth and capturing the temporal variation.

Using our high performance spatio-temporal query platform, the Cryo2Ice Coincident Data Explorer enables users to visualise the spatial intersections for a given time window and download the ESA and NASA data products.

In the next few months, further datasets such as CryoVex will be added. Please email us at info@earthwave.co.uk with any suggestions for new features and datasets you would like to see included.
