NASA Press Events at 2022 Fall AGU Meeting

NASA researchers will be presenting findings on Earth and space sciences Dec.12-16 at the American Geophysical Union's 2022 Fall meeting, being held virtually and in Chicago this year.

Water Mission to Gauge Alaskan Rivers on Front Lines of Climate Change

While Alaska straddles the Arctic Circle and is covered by vast expanses of frozen land, the state also has a lot of liquid water. In fact, Alaska holds about 40% of U.S. surface water resources.

Breathing Life into the Ocean

Almost all life in the ocean depends on tiny photosynthetic organisms known as phytoplankton.

NASA Researcher’s AI ‘Eye’ Could Help Robotic Data-Gathering

Existing artificial intelligence and machine learning tech doesn’t come close to measuring up to human skill. That’s why NASA scientist John Moisan is developing an AI “eye.”

Dusty Copper River Delta

Plumes from this part of Alaska happen in autumn when winds are strong, water levels are low, and snow has not yet blanketed the floodplain.

Carbonate Swirls Spin from the Bahamas

Hurricane Nicole turned the shallow waters along the Abaco Islands into an eddy factory.

5 Things to Know About How SWOT Will Look at the World’s Water

On Dec. 12, NASA will launch the Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) satellite into Earth orbit from The international Surface Water and Ocean Topography mission will provide high-definition data on the salt- and fresh water on Earth’s surface.

An Oceanic and Atmospheric Potpourri

Smoke, cloud wakes, and an abundance of phytoplankton off the coast of Chile punctuate this spring scene.

NASA’s Economic Benefit Reaches All 50 States

NASA released the results of its second agencywide economic impact report on Thursday, demonstrating how its Moon to Mars activities, investments in climate change research and technology, as well as other work generated more than $71.2 billion in total economic output during fiscal year 2021.

Watercolor Seas in the Wake of Hurricane Ian

Storm-stirred sediment produced colorful swirls along the western coast of Florida.

Summer Color for Hood Canal

Though they were a bit tardy this year, the coccolithophores have arrived in Washington’s waters.

Brilliant Color in the Black Sea

As spring 2022 turned the page to summer, phytoplankton turned the seawater from dark to vivid.

NCCS-Hosted Simulations Probe the Interactions of the Freshwater Yukon River and the Salty Arctic Ocean

The NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) Discover supercomputer powered a model NASA Goddard Space Flight Center scientists developed to simulate the physical properties and transport of water in the lower Yukon River and Northern Bering Sea — water that ultimately reaches the freshest of the world’s major oceans, the Arctic Ocean.

Hear 'Sounds of the Sea' in Ocean Scientists' Music Project

This World Oceans Day enjoy a moment of zen with a symphonic tour of the ocean.

NASA-funded Study: Gulf of Maine’s Phytoplankton Productivity Down 65%

The Gulf of Maine is growing increasingly warm and salty, due to ocean currents pushing warm water into the gulf from the Northwest Atlantic, according to a new NASA-funded study. These temperature and salinity changes have led to a substantial decrease in the productivity of phytoplankton that serve as the basis of the marine food web.
