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.
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.
New NASA maps show that a group of glaciers spanning one-eighth of East Antarctica’s coast have begun to lose ice over the past decade, hinting at widespread changes in the ocean.
Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier calved, or broke off, an iceberg three times the size of Manhattan, adding to a lengthening list of major "calving events" that are contributing to global sea level rise.
