Caption: ESA Earth Explorer satellites. Computer illustration showing six of the ESA's (European Space Agency) Earth Explorer satellites. From bottom left: GOCE (Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer) - launched in 2009; Swarm - launched in 2013, is a trio of satellites used to map the Earth's magnetism; ADM (Atmospheric Dynamics Mission) Aeolus - due for launch in 2015 and will use an innovative laser to measure winds; CryoSat 2 - CryoSat was designed to map the Earth's ice cover. CryoSat-1 was lost in 2005 and CryoSat-2 was launched 8 April 2010; EarthCARE (Earth Clouds Aerosols and Radiation Explorer) - due for launch in 2016 and will examine the formation and effects of clouds; SMOS (Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity satellite) - launched
