NASA’s big mission to study Earth’s ocean. Global climate change, global warming, sea level rise, and ice mass loss are defining issues of our time. In fact, most of the understanding we have about Earth’s climate comes from a fleet of over 20 NASA satellites and instruments that monitor sea level, precipitation, ice sheets, global temperature, and other key indicators around the clock.
