NASA changed the file transfer protocol, a system for browsing and retrieving data, now in use on the NASA Sea Level Portal. (For example, this applies to those who want to access global mean sea level data on this page.) The agency retired the current FTP service, available on PO.DAAC, on June 3, 2019, and is recommending that users switch to authenticated HTTPS. This will require creating a NASA Earthdata login profile. For help with HTTPS: https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive/.
As satellites collect larger and larger amounts of data, engineers and researchers are implementing solutions to manage these huge increases.
As the ice-and-snow rubble known as mélange melts in Antarctica’s ice shelves, rifts can grow and icebergs break off even in the brutal cold of winter.
Are you a coastal planner, a policymaker, or concerned about the future of sea level rise? A new tool allows you to visualize and download the projection data from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's 6th Assessment Report (AR6).
A new online visualization tool will enable anyone to see what sea levels will look like anywhere in the world in the decades to come.
The pioneering campaign drops probes from a plane into the sea to track how seawater is melting glaciers and lend insight into the future of sea level rise.
