NASA's Curious Universe Podcast

07.26.2021
With Earth’s recent record-breaking temperatures, the pace of sea level rise has accelerated. NASA scientists take us on a trip into their research right here on our home planet. Join us as we fly over Antarctic ice sheets and consult with orbiting satellites on this exploration of our changing Earth.

Overview

The Cryospheric Sciences Laboratory investigates Earth's ice cover and its connection to the rest of the climate system. Laboratory researchers combine comprehensive surface, aircraft, and satellite observations with sophisticated modeling to characterize the behavior of snow and ice and understand the processes at work.

We provide the scientific expertise needed to develop instrumentation and satellite missions. We develop research-quality datasets and work with the broader research community to ensure their effective use. In addition, Laboratory scientists use their expertise in remote sensing and ice physics to explore cryospheric processes on other solar system bodies.

For further information, data, research, and other resources, see Cryospheric Sciences Research.
