Sea ice from space

In this set of activities, students will investigate Arctic sea ice and its connection to climate. They will discover what happens when oceans freeze by carrying out a series of practical experiments. They have the opportunity to analyse real images from ESA satellites (CryoSat and Copernicus) to locate sea ice concentrations and how they have changed over time. Students gain an understanding of how human actions have influenced climate change and in turn altered landscapes and environments.
