UC San Diego to Develop Cyberinfrastructure for NASA’s ICESat/-2 Data

March 7, 2017

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego have been awarded a NASA ACCESS grant to develop a cyberinfrastructure platform for discovery, access, and visualization of data from NASA’s ICESat and upcoming ICESat-2 laser altimeter missions.

First Results from NASA’s ICESat-2 Mission Map 16 Years of Melting Ice Sheets

April 30, 2020

In a new study published in the journal Science on April 30, scientists found that net loss of ice from Antarctica, along with Greenland’s shrinking ice sheet, has been responsible for 14 millimeters (0.55 inches) of sea-level rise to the global ocean since 2003.

Antarctica’s Floating Boundary Moves up to Nine Miles with the Tide

September 26, 2023

An international study co-authored by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego has created a detailed record of the grounding line location of the southern Ronne Ice Shelf in Antarctica, showing that it moves up to 15 kilometers (nine miles) with the changing tide.

A global team of scientists including several from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego discovered the sudden demise of a large, deep, ice-covered lake on the surface of an Antarctic ice shelf.

New Paper Pinpoints Key Role of NASA Satellites in Monitoring Earth’s Vital Signs

January 30, 2024

In a new paper, scientists from five different institutions present an anthology of key findings unearthed by satellite technology over the last two decades. The all-women group of authors includes Helen Amanda Fricker, a glaciologist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego.

New Study Identifies Atmospheric Rivers as Contributor to Increased Snow Mass in West Antarctica

March 2, 2021

A new study published today in the journal Geophysical Research Letters used NASA’s ice-measuring laser satellite to identify atmospheric river storms as a key driver of increased snowfall in West Antarctica during the 2019 austral winter.
