A science team tallies up the many contributions to sea level rise, such as melting ice and warming, expanding oceans.
NASA’s ICESat-2 satellite successfully launched from California on Saturday, embarking on its mission to measure the ice of Earth’s frozen reaches with unprecedented accuracy.
Seven scientists from an upcoming ice-observing satellite mission describe what they are most excited to study once the data are flowing.
ICESat-2 will provide critical observations of how ice sheets, glaciers and sea ice are changing. Here are ten things to know about NASA’s advanced laser altimeter satellite, launching on Sept. 15, 2018.
Next month, NASA will launch into space the most advanced laser instrument of its kind, beginning a mission to measure – in unprecedented detail – changes in the heights of Earth’s polar ice.
