ICESat-2 is part of NASA's Earth Observing System, is a mission for measuring ice sheet mass elevation, sea ice freeboard as well as land topography and vegetation characteristics. The ICESat-2 mission is designed to provide elevation data needed to determine ice sheet mass balance as well as vegetation coverage information. It provides topography and vegetation data around the globe, in addition to the polar-specific coverage over the polar regions.
