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 data sets can be downloaded through the database for further analysis.
NASA's Sea Level Change Team will meet in Annapolis, Maryland, on March 11-13 to share research results, further collaborative efforts and discuss the team's next direction.
A NASA-led study has found that a giant, growing cavern two-thirds the area of Manhattan is contributing to the rapid melting of Antarctica’s Thwaites Glacier.
Scientists used computer modeling techniques to tease apart the effects of natural variability and climate change on rates of sea-level rise.
Snowfall accumulation in parts of Antarctica increased in the 20th century. The added precipitation has led to some mitigation of sea level rise. Overall, Antarctica still lost far more ice than it gained.
Less than three months into its mission, NASA’s Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2, is already exceeding scientists’ expectations.
