Polar Neutrino Observatory Takes a Big Step Forward

3/21/2006 A subglacial instrument known as IceCube is designed to detect high-energy subatomic particles called neutrinos. More

Impact of Climate Warming on Polar Ice Sheets Confirmed

3/8/2006 In the most comprehensive survey ever undertaken of the massive ice sheets covering both Greenland and Antarctica, NASA scientists confirm climate warming is changing how much water remains locked in Earth's largest storehouse of ice and snow. More

NASA Mission Detects Significant Antarctic Ice Mass Loss

3/2/2006 The first-ever gravity survey of the entire Antarctic ice sheet, conducted using data from the NASA/German Aerospace Center Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE), concludes the ice sheet's mass has decreased significantly from 2002 to 2005. More

Greenland Ice Loss Doubles in Past Decade, Raising Sea Level Faster

2/16/2006 The loss of ice from Greenland doubled between 1996 and 2005, as its glaciers flowed faster into the ocean in response to a generally warmer climate, according to a NASA/University of Kansas study. More

Climate Research at the Top of the World

1/23/2006 Oceanus, a magazine published by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), ran a series of five articles on NSF-funded climate research in the Arctic Ocean. More

NASA Facts: Phoenix Mars Scout

1/1/2006 The Phoenix Mission will land in icy soils near the permanent north polar ice cap of Mars and explore the history of the water in these soils and any associated rocks, while monitoring polar climate. More

NASA's Grace Finds Greenland Melting Faster, 'Sees' Sumatra Quake

12/20/2005 In the first direct, comprehensive mass survey of the entire Greenland ice sheet, scientists using data from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment have measured a significant decrease in the mass of the Greenland ice cap. More

Arctic Sea Ice Continues to Decline, Arctic Temperatures Continue to Rise In 2005

9/28/2005 Researchers from NASA, the National Snow and Ice Data Center and others using satellite data have detected a significant loss in Arctic sea ice. More

NASA Spacecraft Measures Unusual 2005 Arctic Ozone Conditions

6/2/2005 Despite near-record levels of chemical ozone destruction in the Arctic this winter, observations from NASA's Aura spacecraft showed that other atmospheric processes restored ozone amounts to near average. More
