- Robert Bindschadler's Antarctic Blog
-- NASA's Robert Bindschadler wrote a blog during his latest trip to
Antarctica on a quest to carry out experiments at Pine Island Glacier.
The blog details his journey to learn more about why the glacier's ice
shelf is experiencing accelerated thinning of its ice, causing an
impact on sea level.
- 2008 Arctic Sea Ice Concentration Map
-- Using the latest satellite observations from early 2008, NASA
researchers and others report that the Arctic is still on 'thin ice'
when it comes to the condition of sea ice cover in the region. This ice
concentration map from March 9, 2008, shows maximum extent of sea ice
in the Northern Hemisphere.
- Arctic Sea Ice Distribution by Age
-- The sea ice in the Arctic is much younger than normal, with vast
regions now covered by first-year ice. The left image shows February
distribution of ice by its age during normal Arctic conditions
(1985-2000 average), and the right illustrates February 2008 Arctic ice

-- Get the cold, hard facts about setting up an inflatable lunar
habitat in Antarctica straight from the frigid fingers of Larry Toups,
habitat lead for NASA's Constellation Program Lunar Surface Systems
Office, as he keeps an online journal of the process during January
- NASA Joins USGS to Produce Best-Ever Satellite Views Of Antarctica
-- Researchers from NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey have woven
together more than a thousand images from the Landsat 7 satellite to
create the most detailed high-resolution map ever produced of
- NASA Earth Observations
-- Tracking regional and global changes around the world just got
easier. NEO helps you picture climate change and environmental changes
happening on our home planet. With NEO you can search for and retrieve
satellite images of Earth, download them, and export them to
- NASA Views Landing Site Through Eyes of Future Moon Crew
-- NASA has obtained the highest resolution terrain mapping to date of
the moon's rugged south polar region, with a resolution to about 656
feet (20 meters) per pixel.
- NASA Satellite Reveals Unprecedented View of Mysterious 'Night-Shining' Clouds
-- NASA's Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere satellite has provided the
first global-scale, full-season view of iridescent polar clouds that
form 50 miles above Earth's surface.
- NASA Sees Arctic Ocean Circulation About-Face
-- A team of NASA and university scientists has detected an ongoing
reversal in Arctic Ocean circulation triggered by atmospheric
circulation changes that vary on decade-long time scales. The results
suggest not all the large changes seen in Arctic climate in recent
years are a result of long-term trends associated with global warming.
