Title
GRACE-FO & ICESat-2: NASA's Leadership in Monitoring the Polar Regions from Space
Summary
NASA's Tom Neumann explained why the polar regions are so important for the global climate system and what satellites like GRACE-FO and ICESat-2 will contribute to our understanding of them. From 2003 until 2009, NASA's Ice, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) mission measured rapid changes in glaciers, ice sheets and sea ice, and, until late last year the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission maintained a watch on mass distribution around the planet, tracking significant loss in ice covered regions. These rapid ongoing changes in the Earth's ice cover require sustained, high-accuracy, repeat observations in order to continue collecting critical data. In May, NASA launched GRACE-FO, a follow-on mission, and in September, ICESat-2, an improved ICESat.
