The NASA Sea Level Change Data Analysis Tool (DAT) has been designed to allow for quick-look comparisons and analysis of NASA datasets of sea level change. The datasets range from sea level observations, to ice observations, to model output to quickly study anomalies and get immediate results on potential relations between different datasets. For computational reasons, all data have been interpolated to a 1x1 degree grid. Full datasets can be download through the database for further analysis.
Ice losses from Antarctica have tripled since 2012, increasing global sea levels by 0.12 inch (3 millimeters) in that timeframe alone.
A patch of high sea level called a Kelvin wave is slowly traveling east along the equator in the Pacific Ocean. This type of wave is often a precursor to an El Niño event.
Scientists have combined NASA Earth satellite observations with data on human activities to map locations where freshwater is changing around the globe and to determine why.
Revised dates have been set for the prelaunch briefing and launch of GRACE-FO, NASA's latest Earth-observing satellite mission.
