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/.
NASA Sea Level Change Team member Robert Kopp uses data on past sea-level rise to improve forecasts of what's to come – and to help coastal planners prepare.
The researchers shared their latest findings, and discussed how to make sea-level science more useful to planners and others preparing for changes on the U.S. coast.
To better predict changes in Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier, sea-level scientists turn their focus to the bedrock beneath.
The Surface Water and Ocean Topography mission will explore how the ocean absorbs atmospheric heat and carbon, moderating global temperatures and climate change.
In a question and answer session, ice sheet researcher Sophie Nowicki, a member of the NASA Sea Level Change Team, discusses a new era in sea-level research.
