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, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, provide measurements of the Earth’s gravity field, including the variability of ocean mass.
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 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)
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 (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)
Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment (PREFIRE) will quantify the radiative processes effected by changing temperatures in the Arctic.
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, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-On, provides measurements of the Earth’s month-to-month mass variations.
