Animation using NASA Aqua Satellite Data Shows Annual Arctic Sea Ice Retreat

10/7/2010 At the end of each summer, sea ice in the Arctic reaches its minimum extent for the year. This NASA animation shows the retreat of Arctic sea ice cover from March 31 through September 19, as recorded by the AMSR-E instrument on the Aqua satellite. More

Are Ocean Currents Hastening the Retreat of Greenland’s Glaciers?

6/10/2010 Greenland’s glaciers are not simply melting, cautions Fiamma Straneo, a physical oceanographer at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. It would be more accurate to say they’re falling apart, according to her NSF- and NASA-funded research. More
