Iceberg B-15A was the largest iceberg in the world (~11,000 square kilometers) when it broke away from Western Antarctica’s Ross Ice Shelf in March 2000. The Multi-Angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) acquired these views of the new iceberg B-15J (resting against Ross Island) and B-15A (now free to drift into…(Read More)

The left-hand panel is a natural-color view from MISR’s downward-looking (nadir) camera. The center panel is a multi-angular composite from three MISR cameras, in which color acts as a proxy for angular reflectance variations related to texture. Here, data from the red-band of MISR’s 60° forward-viewing, nadir…(Read More)

The Amery Ice Shelf is an important dynamic system responsible for draining about 16 percent of the grounded East Antarctic ice sheet through only 2 percent of its coastline. Most of the mass input to the system occurs from the Lambert Glacier and several other glaciers. Mass loss from the system occurs through basal melting…(Read More)

As a consequence of its capability to retrieve cloud-top elevations, stereoscopic observations from the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) can discriminate clouds from snow and ice. The central portion of Russia’s East Siberian Sea, including one of the New Siberian Islands, Novaya Sibir, are portrayed in these views from data acquired on May…(Read More)
