Twitter Web App : Seawater expands as it heats up, resulting in about a third of the modern-day global average sea level rise. Melting ice from land-based sources like glaciers and ice sheets accounts for the rest. pic.twitter.com/Y0fnBtvX4e
Twitter Web App : Measuring the height of the ocean gives scientists a real-time indication of how Earths climate is changing. The oceans absorb about 90% of the excess heat from the planets warming climate.
Sprinklr : Operation #IceBridge Alaska has had a crucial view of Alaska’s glaciers for the last 11 years. The region is warming more than twice as fast as the rest of the world. As the glaciers melt, they contribute to rising seas. Our latest #EarthExpeditions blog: go.nasa.gov/3iOrDtF
Twitter Web App : Indiana residents are learning to manage more frequent and extreme heat in the Midwest. Local researchers worked with NASA to identify areas of Indianapolis that will be most affected by extreme heat and how best to warn residents. Read more: go.nasa.gov/2Cif2hr
Twitter Web App : This year’s atmospheric conditions have been outstanding for noctilucent cloud formation. The clouds need cold temperatures and high water vapor concentrations—both of which have been present this summer and at record-breaking levels on some days at some latitudes.
TweetDeck : Were looking at clouds from both sides now...with the GLOBE 2020 Community Cloud Challenge! There are a variety of ways to be involved this time around, even if you cant safely get outside during the challenge period. go.nasa.gov/2W1kso1
Twitter Web App : “From space we see our planet as a whole. We see the challenges facing it and we face those challenges together. We will not give up. We challenge convention. We refuse to accept the status quo. The time at hand is hard but we will persevere.” twitter.com/NASAPersevere/…
Twitter Web App : This false-color Landsat image reveals the heat signature of erupting lava and the relative coolness of the dark ash plume. The purple clouds close to the island could be steam from the volcano or from lava vaporizing seawater.
