Release
NASA Mission Detects Significant Antarctic Ice Mass Loss
03.02.06 -- 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.
Release
Greenland Ice Loss Doubles in Past Decade, Raising Sea Level Faster
02.16.06 -- 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.
Release
NASA's Grace Finds Greenland Melting Faster, 'Sees' Sumatra Quake
12.20.05 -- 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.

NASA's Orbiting Earth-Observing Fleet
09.02.05 -- NASA's Earth-observing fleet of spacecraft constitutes a major milestone in the history of Earth science, facilitating pioneering research endeavors that until the last decade have been impossible to even consider. See the orbits of this fleet as they circle the globe.
Feature
Out of the Crevasse Field
08.30.05 -- NASA satellite data help the Antarctic Traverse Team avoid danger and beat a path to the South Pole.

Record Low Arctic Sea Ice in June 2005
07.26.05 -- Except for a small area in the East Greenland Sea, Arctic sea ice has retreated almost everywhere in June 2005. This month, which marks the start of the Arctic melt season, set a new record low.
