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.

Space Station Crew Observes Chicago Nightlights

Expedition 47 Commander Tim Kopra of NASA captured this night image of Chicago on April 5, 2016, from the International Space Station. Expedition 47 began March 1, 2016, and ends June 5, 2016, with no spacewalks currently planned.

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.

OMG Measuring Greenland’s Seafloor

NASA’s Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) field campaign is gathering data that will help scientists understand how the oceans are joining with the atmosphere to melt the vast ice sheet as well as predict the extent and timing of the resulting sea-level rise.

NASA, Japan Make ASTER Earth Data Available At No Cost

Beginning today, all Earth imagery from a prolific Japanese remote sensing instrument operating aboard NASA’s Terra spacecraft since late 1999 is now available to users everywhere at no cost. The public will have unlimited access to the complete 16-plus-year database for Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer

March Snowfall across European Alps

The European Alps stretch 1,200 kilometers (750 miles) across eight countries, and it’s the longest mountain chain situated entirely within Europe. The Alps include more than 100 peaks higher than 4,000 meters (13,000 feet), and this image from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on its Terra satellite beautifully captures a recent snowfall across the region.

NASA Gets Down to Earth This Year With Globe-Spanning Expeditions

NASA is sending scientists around the world in 2016 – from the edge of the Greenland ice sheet to the coral reefs of the South Pacific – to delve into challenging questions about how our planet is changing and what impacts humans are having on it. While Earth science field experiments are nothing new for

Atmospheric River Storms Can Reduce Sierra Snow

A new study by NASA and several partners found that in California’s Sierra Nevada, atmospheric river storms are two-and-a-half times more likely than other types of winter storms to result in destructive “rain-on-snow” events, where rain falls on existing snowpack, causing it to melt.

Students Select EarthKAM Imagery Sites

Students participating in NASA’s EarthKAM program can request photographs of specific Earth features, such as this image of South Africa, which are taken by a special camera mounted on the International Space Station when it passes over those features.

Federal Government Expands UAS Partnerships

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and key government agencies involved in unmanned aircraft operations are expanding participation in the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Executive Committee (EXCOM). The committee provides federal agencies with a forum to share information and reduce redundancies on UAS research and development, and resolve policy and procedural issues on safe UAS integration
