This image, which shows the flow of glacial ice toward the ocean, was derived from measurements from the European Space Agency's Earth Resource Satellite. The flow rate of the Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland more than doubled from 1997 to 2003.
The sea ice around Antarctica on Sept. 27, 2004, as measured by QuikSCAT.
This image, taken by Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on Jan. 31, 2002, shows meltwater starting to form on the Antarctic Larsen Ice Shelf prior to its collapse.
A look at the minimum sea ice concentration for September 2004 using data from the SSM/I sensor.
In addition, the red line indicates the average minimum extent of sea ice for September, derived from the average of monthly data between October 1978 and September 2002.
The average sea ice concentration for the month of January, derived from SSM/I sensor data covering 1980 through 2002.
This image shows the total average net flux measured by CERES between March and April of 2004. The blue region indicates net cooling, while the red indicates net warming.
The aftermath of the Larsen Ice Shelf collapse as seen by MODIS on March 7, 2002.
