Historic Earth Images From NASA Still Hold Research Value
2014-03-19 08:18:42

Carol Rasmussen, NASA NASA's Seasat satellite became history long ago, but it left a legacy of images of Earth's ocean, volcanoes, forests and other features that were made by the first synthetic aperture radar ever mounted on a satellite. Potential research uses for the recently released 35-year-old images are outlined in a paper published in the journal Eos today, March 18. Seasat, which was managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., was the first satellite...

Sink Hole Swallows Car In Chevy Chase, Maryland

WASHINGTON, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New analyses of NASA airborne radar data collected in 2012 reveal the radar detected indications of a huge sinkhole before it collapsed and forced evacuations near Bayou Corne, La. that year. http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20081007/38461LOGO The findings suggest such radar data, if collected routinely from airborne systems or satellites, could at least in some cases foresee sinkholes before they happen, decreasing danger to...

NASA Completes Icelandic Glacier Winter Movement Radar Study
2014-02-10 08:26:13

Beth Hagenauer - NASA The cold of an Icelandic winter did not stop one NASA science aircraft from completing a mission to map glaciers on the island during the past week. NASA's C-20A, based at the Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, Calif., flew four radar missions from Keflavik International Airport near Reykjavik, Iceland. The aircraft carries a precision NASA synthetic aperture radar, developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., that uses a...

Airborne Radar Looks Through Thick Ice During NASA Polar Campaigns
2013-12-03 15:23:42

NASA The bedrock hidden beneath the thick ice sheets covering Greenland and Antarctica has intrigued researchers for years. Scientists are interested in how the shape of this hidden terrain affects how ice moves -- a key factor in making predictions about the future of these massive ice reservoirs and their contribution to sea level rise in a changing climate. NASA has been monitoring Antarctic and Arctic ice since 2009 with the Operation IceBridge airborne mission. Although the primary...
