New NASA data show that Jakobshavn Glacier — Greenland's fastest-moving and fastest-thinning glacier for most of the 2000s — grew for a third year in a row. However, it continues to contribute to sea level rise.
More than a trillion new measurements of Earth’s height – blanketing everything from glaciers in Greenland, to mangrove forests in Florida, to sea ice surrounding Antarctica – are now available to the public.
A major ocean current connecting the Pacific and Indian oceans slows dramatically during northwest Asia Monsoon season. Now, scientists have figured out why.
How will Antarctica's melting ice sheet affect sea level rise hundreds of years in the future? Scientists now have a more accurate model to answer this question.
Our magnificent planet is always ready for its close-up. For Earth Day, NASA wants to see your take.
