Farrell quoted in recent NASA sea ice feature

A recent NASA news feature explored sea ice related research that featured work associated with ESSIC Associate Research Scientist Sinead Farrell, who was also quoted in the piece.  Farrell is part of team that will use NASA’s Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) to measure sea ice in the third dimension. The satellite, expected to launch in 2018, will utilize laser instrumentation which will enable scientists to precisely measure how far sea ice floats above the ocean surface.
