The exhibition, which is being held at the the Dutch museum of culture and science, Museon, in The Hague, highlights the cultural relationship between the Netherlands and Greenland. Both countries have a vested interest in understanding exactly how Arctic ice is changing and the role it plays in moderating sea level and climate. By gathering detailed information on the changing thickness of ice, ESA’s CryoSat ice mission is helping to address these issues.
