Ben Hamlington is a Research Scientist in the Sea Level and Ice Group, in the Earth Sciences Section. He studies the ocean with a particular focus on sea level variability on interannual to decadal timescales. He has also done work on understanding sea level during the 20th century, comparing historical in situ data to modern satellite observations. He is interested in how sea level is responds to both natural and anthropogenic forcing, and what this will mean for coastal populations both now and in the future. He is a member of NASA's Ocean Surface Topography Science team, NASA’s GRACE/GRACE-FO Science Team and is the current team lead of the NASA Sea Level Change Science team.
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.
