YOUR GUIDES

Meet Paige and Pho - your guides through the ICESat-2 FunZone! Join these two to learn more about the NASA ICESat-2 mission.

ICESat-2 is a satellite mission that will measure the height of Earth's ice-covered regions to track melting and other changes. From space, it will also measure the height of other features of our planet, including trees and shrubs, lakes and buildings.

Ice comes in many forms here on Earth, like mountain glaciers and frozen lakes, but most of it is found near the North Pole and South Pole. With temperatures on our planet warming up, many of these icy areas are melting.

EO Kids: 'Ice on Earth'

NASA Earth Observatory for Kids (EO Kids) is looking at a “cool” topic, ice on Earth.

Check it out HERE! In the issue, kids (or adults) can learn about how NASA is monitoring and measuring both land and sea ice on Earth.  Plus, they can follow along and read first-hand experiences from a team of ice scientists in Antarctica in “Notes from the Field: Sledding Around Antarctica.”
