A large portion of the data was collected by IceBridge from 2009 through 2012. One of the mission's scientific instruments, the Multichannel Coherent Radar Depth Sounder, operated by the Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets at the University of Kansas, can see through vast layers of ice to...
Stumpf said being awarded the fellowship wouldn’t have happened without the help of the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, where she works.
Third-year Computer Science Ph.D. student Jerome Mitchell was awarded a 2013 NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF).
Researchers at CReSIS develop radars that scientists from around the world use to study the state of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica.
A University of Kansas student has received a NASA fellowship to design better tools for predicting how climate change will affect sea levels.
A three-year, $90,000 NASA fellowship will allow a University of Kansas School of Engineering graduate student to design tools that will help more precisely predict future sea level rise based on the impact of climate change on the polar ice sheets.
IceBridge uses an ice-penetrating radar instrument known as the Multichannel Coherent Radar Depth Sounder to gather data on ice thickness and subglacial topography. MCoRDS, operated by the Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets at the University of Kansas, sends radar signals down through the...
Earth's polar regions aren't particularly hospitable to computers or humans. Building an advanced data management and storage system -- one that operates on bumpy flights in frigid weather, no less -- can be a formidable task.
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — NASA's Operation IceBridge mission wraps up its spring flight season this week, gathering radar data about Earth's polar ice sheets to help scientists better understand global climate change. Experts from Indiana University have once again played a key role in the mission's...
How do you see through the snow and ice? Especially when it can be more than 2 miles thick? The answer: RADAR; an acronym for RAdio Detecting And Ranging. NASA’s Operation IceBridge has four different kinds of radar.
Area residents, especially those with an eye on agriculture, may be aware of the years-long drought that has afflicted the Midwest. But what about the droughts in sub-Saharan Africa or central India?
Most of the freshwater on earth isn’t held in rivers, lakes or streams. It’s in massive ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland. Those ice sheets hold a valuable record about the past climate of earth, but now they are melting at an increasing rate.
I'm in a video-sharing kind of mood today, so here's another. The National Science Foundation released this clip this week about KU's Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, which goes by an acronym that I always have to double check, CReSIS:
From the ground, air and space, CReSIS researchers study disappearing ice and the potential for sea level rise.
New research published this week provides never-before-seen clues about what could happen to the Greenland ice sheet as global temperatures rise, and it was made possible in part by a Kansas University research center.
Scientists and engineers at the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS), located at the University of Kansas, US, are developing technology that responds to climate change. Their computer models measure and predict not only the response of ice sheets to changes in climate, but also the...
The Operation IceBridge award is a renewal. For four years, IU has provided IT support to the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) at the University of Kansas. CReSIS plays a major role in the IceBridge mission, providing radar technology that measures physical interactions of polar ice...
Researchers with Kansas University’s Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets have received a $1.7 million grant to improve radar systems for capturing images of polar ice sheets from aircraft.
The National Science Foundation is awarding the money over three years. It will help the university's Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets develop enhanced radar that can capture higher-resolution images of polar ice sheets.
Radar technology developed at Kansas University is helping NASA scientists track something they’ve never monitored before: the birth of an iceberg.
