- Signs of Summer Thaw on the Antarctic Peninsula
-- The tip of the Antarctic Peninsula showed seasonal changes in late
January 2008. Images captured on Jan. 24 and Jan. 30 by the Moderate
Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on NASA's Terra satellite show a
dramatic color shift, signs of the summer thaw.
- Summer Thaw, Eastern Greenland
-- Summer thaw was underway on the fringe of eastern Greenland when the
Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Terra
satellite passed overhead and captured this image on July 13, 2007.
- Sea Ice and Cloud Streets in the Sea of Okhotsk
-- Tucked between Siberia and Russia's frozen Kamchatka Peninsula, the
Sea of Okhotsk was a field of ice when the Terra satellite captured
this photo-like image on February 6, 2007.
- NASA Embarks on Cutting-Edge Polar Exploration and Research
-- NASA has selected 33 new scientific investigations to fund that will
advance interdisciplinary studies of Earth's polar regions and the
objectives of the International Polar Year (IPY). The three-year
projects will be conducted by scientists and students at NASA centers,
U.S. universities and other research institutions.
- 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
- IPY from the International Space Station
-- The International Space Station provides a unique vantage point to
image polar features like aurora, polar mesospheric clouds, plankton
blooms, sea ice, and glaciers. Through "Crew Earth Observations,"
station crew will collaborate with IPY scientists by taking images of
their research areas.
- Mars Climate Sounder: An
investigation of thermal and water vapor structure, dust and condensate
distributions in the atmosphere, and energy balance of the polar regions
-- Journal of Geophysical Research, McCleese, D. J.; Schofield, J. T.;
Taylor, F. W.; Calcutt, S. B.; Foote, M. C.; Kass, D. M.; Leovy, C. B.;
Paige, D. A.; Read, P. L.; Zurek, R. W. (Vol. 112, No. E5, E05S06)
