 Sea Level And Ice: Projects

ECCO-IcES Icon ECCO-IcES
ECCO-IcES is a project that aims to produce increasingly accurate syntheses of all available global-scale ocean and sea-ice data at resolutions that start to resolve ocean eddies.

GRACE Icon GRACE
GRACE, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, provide measurements of the Earth’s gravity field, including the variability of ocean mass.

ISSM Icon ISSM
ISSM (Ice and Sea-level System Model) is a state of the art ice flow modeling software developed at JPL in collaboration with University of California Irvine.

Jason-3 Icon Jason-3
Jason-3 will continue the time series of ocean surface topography data after TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1 and Jason-2. Launch is planned for 2015.

OMG (Oceans Melting Greenland) Icon OMG (Oceans Melting Greenland)
OMG uses the GLISTIN-A radar to measure Greenland's receding glaciers, air-dropped ocean sensors to measure the nearby oceans, as well as ship-based sonar and airborne gravity to map the depth and shape of the sea floor around the glaciers.

ISMIP6 Icon ISMIP6
ISMIP6 (Ice Sheet Model Intercomparison Model for CMIP6) is the primary activity within the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project – phase 6 (CMIP6) focusing on the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets.

PREFIRE (Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment) Icon PREFIRE (Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment)
The Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment (PREFIRE), externally led by UW-Madison PREFIRE home, will quantify the radiative processes effected by changing temperatures in the Arctic.”

Jason-CS (Sentinel-6) Icon Jason-CS (Sentinel-6)
Launching the first of two satellite altimeters in 2020, Jason-CS (Sentnel-6) will continue measuring ocean surface topography through 2030.

Ice sheet Mass Balance Inter-comparison Exercise (IMBIE)
IMBIE is a collaboration between scientists supported by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and contributes to assessment reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

GRACE Follow-On Icon GRACE Follow-On
GRACE Follow-On, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-On, provides measurements of the Earth’s month-to-month mass variations.

NASA Sea Level Change Icon NASA Sea Level Change
NASA’s Sea Level Change team was selected in 2014, 2017, and 2020, to focus on advancing NASA sea level science and forming new collaborations to tackle the interdisciplinary challenges in sea level research.
