Project Iceberg is the education and outreach site for ANDRILL (ANtarctic geologic DRILLing), a research project to drill and recover cores of sedimentary rock from the sea floor beneath the McMurdo Ice Shelf in order to construct a history of paleoenvironmental changes that will guide understanding of the scope, speed, and frequency of glacial and interglacial changes in Antarctica. The site features ... Full description.

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.

Recent satellite images have revealed two new icebergs floating off the Antarctic coast. The icy behemoths are fragments of the Ninnis Glacier. This NASA fact sheet uses text and remotely sensed imagery to describe the events of January 2000, in which a large tongue of the Ninnis Galcier broke off and split into two gigantic icebergs. The breakup of the Ninnis Glacier Tongue has important implications ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
The Pine Island Glacier is the largest discharger of ice in Antarctica and the continents fastest moving glacier. Even so, when a large crack formed across the glacier in mid 2000, it was surprising how fast the crack expanded, 15 meters per day, and how soon the resulting iceberg broke off, mid-November, 2001. This iceberg, called B-21, is 42 kilometers by 17 kilometers and contains seven years of ... Full description.

Staff from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) and the University of New Hampshire have assembled a digital image map and a snow-grain-size image of the Antarctic continent and surrounding islands. This map, a mosaic of Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) imagery from the Terra and Aqua satellites, provides a cloud-free view of the ice sheet, ice shelves, and land surfaces ...
