This 5-minute animation portrays fluctuations in the cryosphere through observations collected from a variety of satellite-based sensors. The cryosphere consists of those parts of the Earth's surface where water is found in solid form, including areas of snow, sea ice, glaciers, permafrost, ice sheets, and icebergs. In these regions, surface temperatures remain below freezing for a portion of each ... Full description.

This video describes NASA's Jason mission, a joint U.S.-France oceanography mission, launched in 2001, to monitor global ocean circulation, discover the tie between the oceans and atmosphere, improve global climate predictions and monitor events such as El Nino conditions and ocean eddies. Jason-1 is a follow-on mission to NASA's TOPEX/Poseidon mission. The video was produced before launch, so descriptions ... Full description.
