map widget from IceFlow

With support from NASA, the NSIDC DAAC now offers an interactive tool called IceFlow that harmonizes and standardizes lidar data into a uniform format, allowing scientists to analyze significant changes within the cyrosphere.

NSIDC celebrates 25 years as a Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC), archiving and distributing snow and ice data from NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) missions.

A new satellite instrument helps expand NSIDC's cryospheric satellite products, which provide snow and ice data extending from 1979 to the present.

Why is citing data important? Including data citations can be just as valuable as literature citations, not only to fellow researchers, but to those who compile data, organizations distributing data, and agencies that fund research.

We’ve all heard it: Arctic sea ice is melting. Sea ice is thinner year to year and there is less of it. In 2007, scientists observed a nearly 50 percent loss of summer ice as compared to 1980....

Sea ice extent reached a new record low on August 27, 2012 and continued to decline. The last six years have...

Sea ice melt near Greenland can affect ice on the island in a couple ways. As sea ice retreats from the fronts of marine-terminating glaciers, the glaciers lose stability and may flow faster. In...

Researchers can measure ice thickness by drilling holes in the sea ice. But the method...
