Antarctic Icebergs Break Free

On April 7, 2016, multiple satellites captured the birth of two large icebergs that were shed along a crack on Antarctica’s Nansen Ice Shelf during persistent strong offshore winds. The icebergs currently pose no threat to shipping, but they may pose a threat to scientific instruments moored to the seafloor to monitor climate change.

Mysteries of Wobbling Earth Solved

Using satellite data on how water moves around Earth, NASA scientists solved two mysteries about wobbles in the planet's rotation. Earth’s spin axis drifts slowly around the poles; the farthest away it has wobbled since observations began is 37 feet (12 meters). These wobbles don’t affect daily life, but they must be taken into account to get accurate results from GPS, Earth-observing satellites and ground-based observatories.
