Cryosat: ESA's ice mission / Honora Rider, Bruce Battrick, eds.

Title: Cryosat: ESA's ice mission / Honora Rider, Bruce Battrick, eds.
Author(s): Rider, Honora,
Battrick, Bruce,
Date: 2003.
Publisher: Netherlands: ESA Publications Division
Abstract: Prospectus describing European Space Agency's Cryosat mission, dedicated to monitoring changes in thickness of polar ice sheets and floating sea ice over 3-year period. Outlines impact of ice on climate and sea level; evidence for (net) melting of Earth's ice; how Cryosat will detect ice thickness changes; Cryosat's instruments, including radar altimeter usable in Synthetic Aperture Radar mode and its positioning system; supporting ground observations; Cryosat's launch vehicle (Russian Rockot), power source and antennas. Presents mission overview with discussion of orbit configuration, etc.
