CryoSat will acquire accurate measurements of the thickness of floating sea-ice so that seasonal to inter-annual variations can be detected. CryoSat will also survey the surface of continental ice sheets to detect small elevation changes. CryoSat's high spatial resolution radar altimeter is capable of operating in a number of modes, optimised for measurement over different surfaces.
