Arctic sea-ice thickness for April 2013, as measured by CryoSat. Maps showing three years of Arctic sea-ice measurements were unveiled at the Living Planet Symposium in Edinburgh, UK.
On the first day of the symposium, a special session was held to celebrate the scientific achievements and legacies of Seymour Laxon and Katharine Giles. The two scientists, who passed away earlier this year in separate incidents, were key players in the CryoSat mission and exploitation of its data.
