Ozone ups and downs15 November 2017
Ozone ups and downs15 November 2017 Climate scientists studying three decades of ozone measurements from seven satellites see a positive trend in global recovery thanks to international efforts to curb ozone-depleting substances.
Satellites track Antarctic ice loss over decades02 May 2017 Over two decades of observations by five radar satellites show the acceleration of ice loss of 30 glaciers in Western Palmer Land in the southwest Antarctic Peninsula.
Satellites track variations in Antarctica’s glacial retreat12 December 2016
Satellites track variations in Antarctica’s glacial retreat12 December 2016 Five satellites spanning two decades have revealed variations in the timing and pace of glacial retreat in West Antarctica. Some glaciers’ thinning spreads up to three times faster than on neighbouring tributaries, and was offset by decades.
