Earth's polar regions feature cold-climate environments characterised by unique landscapes, biota, and processes. The climate in these regions is driven largely by cryospheric processes that are subject to, or have the potential for, fundamental and rapid change in a warming world. Bridging spatial scales and knowledge gaps in these regions requires remote sensing observations.
