NASA's fleet of Earth science satellites, along with Earth science instruments on the International Space Station, surveys the whole globe, even the most remote parts that are difficult if not impossible to visit. With instruments in space, scientists can get data for the whole globe in detail that they can't get anywhere else. This visualization shows the NASA fleet in 2017, from low Earth...

NASA's Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) aircraft flew from the northwest coast to the northeast coast, all the way across the Greenland Ice Sheet, across 620 miles (1,000 kilometers) of ice that’s up to 2 miles thick and hundreds of thousands of years old, to measure glacier elevation around Greenland’s coastline.

OMG will fly the same science lines along the same coastal glaciers every year...

A fast-growing crack in Antarctica’s Larsen C ice shelf has captured public attention, but what does it mean for sea level rise?

“We have to look at the big picture of the evolution of Larsen C,” said glaciologist Eric Rignot, a senior scientist at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and member of NASA’s sea level team. “To be modeling these cracks is extremely challenging. It’s a little bit like...

New NASA data show that snowpack in the Tuolumne River Basin in California's Sierra Nevada — a major source of water for San Francisco and California's Central Valley — is currently larger than the four previous years of snowpack combined.

NASA's Airborne Snow Observatory (ASO) measured the Tuolumne Basin snowpack on April 1, a critical annual measurement of snow for states and their...

A new NASA-funded study has identified which glaciers in West Greenland are most susceptible to thinning in the coming decades by analyzing their shape. The research could help predict how much the Greenland Ice Sheet will contribute to sea level rise in the next century, a number that currently ranges from inches to feet.

NASA scientists have just released the first new global map of Earth at night since 2012. This nighttime look at our home planet, dubbed the Black Marble, provides researchers with a unique perspective of human activities around the globe. By studying Earth at night, researchers can investigate how cities expand, monitor light intensity to estimate energy use and economic activity, and aid in...

Neumayer Glacier is on the east coast of South Georgia, an island some 1,200 miles (2,000 kilometers) east of South America’s southern tip. It has retreated more than 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) during the past 16 years. Neumayer flows into the ocean; even a tiny change in ocean temperature significantly affects the amount of heat available to melt the glacier.
