Dr. Nadya Vinogradova is a principal scientist and the founder of Cambridge Climate Institute in Massachusetts. She uses NASA satellite observations and climate models to understand and predict the changes in sea level and Earth’s water cycle. She gained recognition for her work on gravitational effects on sea level and ocean mass, as well as for promoting the use of salinity in estimating the exchange of freshwater within the ocean-land-atmosphere system. She has been a member of NASA Sea Level Change Team since 2014 and NASA Ocean Salinity Science Team since 2008.
Scientists have combined NASA Earth satellite observations with data on human activities to map locations where freshwater is changing around the globe and to determine why.
Revised dates have been set for the prelaunch briefing and launch of GRACE-FO, NASA's latest Earth-observing satellite mission.
Operation IceBridge, NASA’s longest-running airborne mission to monitor polar ice change, concluded this year’s springtime survey of Arctic sea and land ice.
GRACE Follow-On's unique satellite view of underground water will be valuable in creating one of the most important U.S. tools for tracking drought throughout the nation.
Melting polar ice doesn't raise global sea level evenly, like filling a sink. GRACE-FO can help scientists understand differences in sea level rise on the world's coastlines.
