New research shows that while some Antarctic ice shelves have been thinning since at least the 1970s, widespread thinning accelerated in the 1990s.
Jointly organized by the NASA History Office and the Earth Science Division, this workshop seeks to document the important contributions of airborne campaigns implemented on NASA’s DC-8 Airborne Science Laboratory. The workshop will be a combination of keynote talks, panel discussions, and roundtables.
In 2023, The NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) and the NASA Science Managed Cloud Environment (SMCE) provided mission-critical, tailored computing resources to enable research and accelerate scientific discoveries that deepen our understanding of Earth and better prepare for its changing climates.
NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan, and other United States government leaders unveiled the U.S. Greenhouse Gas Center Monday during the 28th annual United Nations Climate Conference (COP28).
Stuck on the seafloor for decades, Iceberg A-23A now freely drifts northward toward warmer, iceberg-destroying waters.
The fiery and icy upper reaches of the Antarctic volcano pierced through a canopy of clouds.
Ice cores and satellite images are helping preserve the history of a disappearing ice cap in the Peruvian Andes.
After passing the Antarctic Peninsula, Iceberg D-30A grazed the much smaller Clarence Island, spun around, and drifted north.
Arctic sea ice likely reached its annual minimum extent on September 19, 2023, making it the 6th lowest year in the satellite record
NASA scientists are testing a technology that from orbit could more accurately measure water stored in snow.
Unusual late-season melting in Greenland turned the glacier’s surface into a mishmash of ice, firn, melt, and dirt.
The extent of winter sea ice surrounding Antarctica is in uncharted territory in the satellite record.
The glacier is a popular tourist destination near Juneau, but each year there is less of it to see.
Each year, NASA scientists, engineers, and developers create software packages to manage space missions, test spacecraft, and analyze the petabytes of data produced by agency research satellites. As the agency innovates for the benefit of humanity, many of these programs are now downloadable and free of charge through NASA’s Software Catalog.
Seasonal warmth led to the rapid disintegration of sea ice near the junction of two large outlet glaciers.
Warm weather caused substantial melting in June and July 2023, especially on the southern portion of the island.
In light of recent extreme weather events in the United States and around the world, NASA held a media roundtable July 20 from its headquarters in Washington to highlight the agency’s climate work.
NASA leadership, including climate experts, will be available at 4 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 20, at the agency’s headquarters in Washington to shed light on recent extreme weather events, and discuss how NASA research and data is enabling climate solutions.
NASA Space Apps, in collaboration with NASA Transform to Open Science (TOPS), is proud to announce the 2023 NASA International Space Apps Challenge theme: “Explore Open Science Together.” This year’s theme celebrates the benefits and successes created through the equitable and open sharing of knowledge and data. Registration is open through Oct 8.
The climate phenomenon emerged in late spring 2023, as waters grew warmer and sea levels rose higher than usual in the tropical Pacific Ocean.
Sea ice crumbled rapidly in the waters of northern Canada as conditions changed in May.
Decades of retreat are visible from above, but harder-to-see changes below the waterline could also affect this iconic glacier’s future.
Awe-inspiring NASA visuals combined with the might of a live symphonic orchestra last week in “Cosmic Cycles,” a multimedia collaboration among the agency’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, the National Philharmonic, and composer Henry Dehlinger.
Vice President Kamala Harris and Republic of Korea (ROK) President Yoon Suk Yeol saw firsthand how NASA studies climate change during a visit to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, this afternoon.
