JPL Polar Oceanography Group

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Polar Oceanography Group utilizes "satellite microwave remote sensing data and in-situ methods to understand the climate-induced variability in sea-ice and land-ice on seasonal to interannual time scales." Research conducted by the group is mainly concerned with Arctic Sea Ice, Antarctic Sea Ice, and Ice Sheets. "The principal thrust of this research is to understand the role of the polar oceans in controlling or regulating global climate." A data products section includes online data for sea ice melt detection and ice drift and ice motion data. The excellent publications section offers online copies (.pdf) of the group's work dating from 1989 to current publications that are in press. The site also provides news, contacts, and links.
