A recent report confirms that ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica, whose mass-loss rates have been rapidly increasing, are matching the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's worst-case sea-level rise scenarios.

Earth's climate is changing, and the study of oceans is vital to understanding the effects of those changes on our future.

Total human carbon dioxide emissions could match those of Earth's last major greenhouse warming event in fewer than five generations, new research finds.

Earth's global surface temperatures in 2018 were the fourth warmest since 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The theme of the third plenary at the 67th International Astronautical Congress taking place in Guadalajara, Mexico was Space and Climate: How Space Agencies Will Contribute to the Implementation and Follow-up of the Paris Agreement during COP 21?

Tiny particles suspended in the air, known as aerosols, can darken snow and ice causing it to absorb more of the sun's energy. But until recently, scientists rarely considered the effect of all three major types of light-absorbing aerosols together in climate models.

A new NASA study of ocean temperature measurements shows in recent years extra heat from greenhouse gases has been trapped in the waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans.

As climate change continues to hammer Arctic sea ice, pushing back its summertime boundaries to record-high latitudes, NASA is flying an innovative airborne mission to find out how these developments will affect worldwide weather.

The most accurate and comprehensive collection of rain, snowfall and other types of precipitation data ever assembled now is available to the public.

Earth from Space: UK Climate Change

In this special edition, David Parker, Chief Executive of the UK Space Agency, and Christopher Merchant from the University of Reading and science leader of the Climate Change Initiative's sea-surface temperature project, join the show to discuss climate research in the UK.

For more than a century scientists have known that Earth's ice ages are caused by the wobbling of the planet's orbit, which changes its orientation to the sun and affects the amount of sunlight reaching higher latitudes, particularly the polar regions.

NASA has released two videos showing projected precipitation and temperature changes in North America by 2100.

Climate 365

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden has experienced that rarest view of Earth from space, afforded only to astronauts. He reflects on that perspective in his new blog post, "Protecting Planet Earth," as he outlines NASA's scientific research role in President Obama's new Climate Action Plan.

The Arctic permafrost contains vast amount off organic carbon stored over millennia. A NASA program, CARVE, is testing a hypotheses that Arctic carbon reservoirs are vulnerable to climate warming. Will these reservoirs be released? And what happens if these vast amount of stored carbon are released?

Ice Sheet Loss at Both Poles Increasing

An international team of experts supported by NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) has combined data from multiple satellites and aircraft to produce the most comprehensive and accurate assessment to date of ice sheet losses in Greenland and Antarctica and their contributions to sea level rise.
