Listen to Kojo Nnamdi's pre-CReSIS interview with CReSIS Director Dr. Prasad Gogineni, CReSIS's NSF Program Director Dr. Julie Palais, and Dr. Waleed Abdalati, the head of the Cryospheric Sciences Branch at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are losing mass at an accelerating pace, according to a new NASA-funded satellite study. The findings of the study -- the longest to date of changes in polar ice sheet mass -- suggest these ice sheets are overtaking ice loss from Earth's mountain glaciers and...
The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets will play a key role in helping the North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling project, based at the University of Copenhagen, find the best site for its next decade-long ice-coring venture.
Researchers concluded that the melting of ice caps has overtaken the melting of mountain glaciers to be the most dominant source of global sea level rise, much sooner than previous forecast models predicted.
Cutting-edge radar technology developed at the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, based at the University of Kansas, has cast new light on the field of glaciology, compelling scientists to reassess the role of melt water beneath miles-thick ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland.
As frozen lands disintegrate, researchers rush to catch the collapse. CReSIS staffer Leigh Stearns is featured in this Science News Feature.
Scientists working in the remotest part of Antarctica have discovered that liquid water locked deep under the continent’s coat of ice regularly thaws and refreezes to the bottom, creating as much as half the thickness of the ice in places, and actively modifying its structure.CReSIS Deputy Director...
NASA is known for exploring space, but the agency also keeps an eye on earth. This week a senior executive of NASA will speak at Kansas University about what observations from space can tell us about the planet’s climate change.
The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets and the Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas are sponsoring an upcoming lecture by NASA scientist Jack Kaye.
Julia Guard, an undergraduate in geography, received a prestigious internship with the National Geographic Society.
Is Antarctica headed for a catastrophic meltdown? New evidence of ancient climate change may hold clues. Watch the episode here!
On Friday, Jan. 28 in Antarctica, a research team investigating the last 100,000 years of Earth's climate history reached an important milestone completing the main ice core to a depth of 3,331 meters (10,928 feet) at West Antarctic Ice Sheet Divide (WAIS).
A rugged and steady-going glacier is helping University of Kansas researchers more accurately predict future sea levels, which directly affect millions of people living near coasts worldwide.
On Nov. 21, NASA’s 2010 IceBridge campaign flew a final flight over Antarctica, completing its ice-observing mission for the year.
First in a series of New York Times articles on climate change, sea level rise, and melting glaciers.
CReSIS glaciologist Leigh Stearns featured in Rolling Stone article on the melting of the world's two great ice sheets.
The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets will receive more than $17.9 million from the National Science Foundation to continue its innovative research on the changing conditions of the world’s polar ice.
New York Times video features OSU's Lonnie Thompson on vanishing Himalayan glaciers, an environmental "canary in a coal mine," and their implications.
Natalia Galin, scientist at the University of Tasmania's Institute for Marine and Antarctic Science, has been named one of 16 Fresh Science winners. Galin collaborated with CReSIS to build a radar system flown on a helicopter over Antarctica.
Scientists have released detailed pictures of the elusive Gamburtsev Mountains located more than a mile below the Antarctica ice. Dr. David Braaten helped collect data on this mountain range using CReSIS radar during the 2008-2009 AGAP survey.
