Abstract Reports on coordinated activites during 2007-08 International Polar Year for spaceborne observations of polar regions. Notes that, to date, space agencies have worked to develop data "portfolios" that aim to satisfy a significant number of scientific requirements; also that data legacy and experience gained in developing scientific consensus and space agency collaborations will provide strong foundation for continued observations planned through Integrated Global Observing Strategy Cryosphere (IGOS).
