From ice core sampling to computer modelling, discover how scientists are finding and using a variety of data to track changes in our climate.

Learn how scientists are finding and using a variety of data to track changes in our climate. From a snapshot of earth thousands of years ago in ice core samples, to predictive models that help us understand the future of the planet, discover how data is the foundational work of climate science.

Ice Core Data

 
Dr. Lonnie Thompson and Dr. Ellen Mosley Thompson, senior research scientists at Byrd Polar & Climate Research Center at The Ohio State University, discuss their work collecting and researching ice cores from around the world; and how the data collected helps in studying climate.

Ocean Data

 
Tracking the smallest ocean crustaceans is a valuable tool in tracking climate change.

Geologist and former NASA Astronaut, Dr. Kathy Sullivan discusses how tracking the smallest crustaceans in the ocean is a valuable tool in tracking climate change.

Climate Modeling

 
A NASA climate model looks at the implications of human’s impact on the Earth.

Dr. Kate Marvel, a climate scientist, writer and storyteller explains the importance of climate modeling at NASA and its implications for our everyday understanding of how we impact the earth.
