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.
Formerly the island's fastest-flowing glacier, Jakobshavn Glacier slowed dramatically when a nearby ocean current cooled, though it's still adding to global sea level rise.
As it takes to the field for the fourth year in a row, NASA's Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) mission has proven that when it comes to the world's largest island, we still have a lot to learn.
New observations and more powerful computer models allow scientists to peer beneath the ice of Greenland and Antarctica.
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.
