June 7th,2012 - NASA Finds Unprecented Blooms of Ocean Plant Life

 



NASA finds Unprecedented blooms of Ocean Plant life

NASA researchers recently made a biological discovery in Arctic Ocean waters when they punched through three-foot thick sea ice to find waters rich in microscopic marine plants, essential to all sea life. This portion of ocean is found to be richer in these vital components than any other ocean region on earth.

April 25,2012 - Warm Ocean Currents Cause Majority of Ice Loss from Antarctica

 



Warm Ocean Currents Cause Majority of Ice Loss from Antarctica

Researchers using measurements from NASA's Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) found that the majority of ice shelves being studied were being melted by warm ocean currents as opposed to warming air temperatures. These measurements should enable researchers to provide a more reliable projection of future sea level rise.

October 5, 2011 - Ground Water Sustainability and Climate Change interview with NASA Space Grant intern Luis Huizar

 



Ground water sustainability and climate change

This article discusses the findings of NASA Space Grant intern Luis Huizar, as he studies how climate change is affecting ground water levels. Luis conducted his research out of the University of Arizona where he focused on climate change and ground water sustainability in Arizona, as well as other states of the United States. Through his research, Luis then made mathematical models to predict possible outcomes given different rainfall scenarios.
