The Cryosphere refers to any place on Earth where water is in its solid form, where low temperatures freeze water and turn it into ice. The frozen water can be in the form of solid ice or snow and occurs in many places around the Earth. People often think of the polar regions of our planet as the main home of the Cyrosphere; the North Pole in the Arctic, as well as the South Pole in the Antarctic. The cryosphere exists in the polar regions, but is also found wherever snow, sea ice, glaciers, permafrost, ice sheets, and icebergs exists. In these places, surface temperatures remain below freezing for a portion of each year.

If you want to understand how interconnected our planet is—how patterns and events in one place can affect life half a world away—study El Niño.
What are Phytoplankton?
Derived from the Greek words phyto (plant) and plankton (made to wander or drift), phytoplankton are microscopic organisms that live in watery environments, both salty and fresh.
This digital GLOBE Earth system poster provides animations of the Earth Systems data for years 2017-2018 to find patterns among different environmental data, understand the relationship among different environmental parameters, and more.
