A series of glaciers in the Antarctic are being named after the satellites that have revealed the changing state of the White Continent.
The spacecraft, from Europe, the US and Japan, have all contributed important observational data which confirms a picture of accelerating ice loss.
They include the pioneering American Landsat series of satellites and Europe's new Sentinel fleet.  I believe that this is a great way to represent our gratitude for those who have helped us in our discoveries about the artic glaciers, and this is a great way to encourage more discoveries and show that we care and appreciated their help.
