Join us and slide into the cryosphere

Starts 28 Feb- 4 . Virtual course focuses on Earth Observation satellite data to monitor the cryosphere

A new virtual course, Earth Observation from Space: the Cryosphere, is now open, with a live week from 28 February to 04 March 2022.

ESA has partnered with Imperative Space to design a Cryosphere Massive Open Online Course. This virtual course will explore the different components of the cryosphere – glaciers, ice sheets, sea ice, lake ice and snow – and will describe experiments and scientific discoveries that may help us develop the next generation of Earth Observing satellites. By participating and studying with us, you will learn how scientists use satellite information to better understand the changes of the Earth’s cryosphere.

While monitoring the Earth has become increasingly reliant on Earth Observing satellite technology, downstream use of these data mostly lies with academic researchers. The Cryosphere MOOC seeks to strengthen your knowledge of Earth Observing satellites focusing on how we use these data to monitor snow and ice on Earth.

Sign up for the Cryosphere MOOC now and be ready to join the Live Week from 28 February to 04 March 2022: you will explore the frozen Earth and interact in real time with our leading teaching and research team from the University of Leeds, University College London, British Antarctic Survey, DTU Space, the Alfred Wegener Institute and many more.
