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.
The Jason-2 mission provided unique insights into ocean currents, sea level rise and climate change for 11 years.
Data from the mission show water weight gain across the U.S. Midwest and rapid weight loss from Greenland's melting ice.
The new map of ice flow speeds throughout Antarctica will improve our understanding of the vast continent and of future sea level rise.
