Antarctic Elevation Laser Profiles and Digital Model
Beautiful Earth is a unique education experience for people of all ages that combines live music, a multi-media presentation of NASA visualizations, NASA scientist and Native American perspectives of the Earth and its cryosphere, and hands-on workshops at partner museums across the U.S.
Ice in Motion, a series of posters depicting NASA’s work in Greenland, is now freely available for download. The posters, which were translated into Danish and Greenlandic with the help of high school students, are currently on display at several airports and high schools in Greenland.
ICESat-2 is a satellite mission launched in September 2018. ICESat-2 uses green lasers to measure the height of Earth's ice-covered regions to track melting and other changes. From space, it will also measure the height of other features of our planet, including land, trees and shrubs, water and even buildings. Visit ICESat-2’s Funzone for videos, hands-on activities, interactives, and citizen science opportunities.
Send a "note from the field" with postcards featuring images from Operation IceBridge, NASA's six-year airborne mission to monitor Earth's polar ice sheets, glaciers, and sea ice. Display the front of the cards to showcase spectacular images and visualizations from the mission. Turn the cards over to read factoids and learn about the ice at Earth's polar regions.
