In a series of media opportunities Wednesday, Aug. 26 through Friday, Aug. 28, NASA experts will present an up-to-date global outlook on current conditions and future projections of sea level rise. From fieldwork on the Greenland ice sheet this summer, to new satellite views of sea level changes around the world, NASA’s “Rising Seas” events will provide the latest assessment of scientific understanding of this global environmental issue. NASA will host a media teleconference at 12:30 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Aug. 26 to discuss recent insights on sea level rise and the continuing challenge of predicting how fast and how much sea level will rise. The panelists for this briefing are: Michael Freilich, director of NASA’s Earth Science Division at the agency’s headquarters in Washington Steve Nerem, lead for NASA’s Sea Level Change Team at the University of Colorado in Boulder Jo...
