Nevertheless, Moore is disappointed in the way NASA handled two decadal survey missions: Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP), a campaign to measure water in topsoil, and Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) 2, which focuses on ice sheets and sea ice. To study soil moisture, the committee ...
Popescu, a Texas A&M AgriLife Research ecosystem science and management scientist in College Station, is on the mission team of competitively selected scientists helping NASA define its science goals and provide guidance to the Ice, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2, mission.

The previous effort in the 2000s, known as IceSat-1, showed remarkable promise as an ice-sensing tool. However, its mission was blighted by fragile diode technology, and it could only use its laser for a handful of months a year. "IceSat-2 is a micro-pulse laser," says Nasa project scientist Thorsten Markus.
The path they chose follows the ground track of NASA's Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2), an ice-mapping satellite that is scheduled for launch in late 2018. This path began at the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula and then moved southward across the Weddell Sea. The images the ...
IceBridge flights began collecting data in 2009, given that NASA's Ice, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite, called ICESat, was operating beyond its expected run time, according to NASA representatives. The satellite was decommissioned in 2010 and a new satellite, ICESat-2, is planned for launch this ...
NASA has long employed satellites to monitor weather and climate from space; from 2003 to 2010, the ICESat satellite circled the Earth in a north-south orbit, keeping an eye on the poles. But ICESat got no lower than 364 miles above ground, and ICESat-2, set to launch this year, will fly similarly high. The most detailed ...

Its predecessor, ICESat, was launched in 2003 and operated until early 2010 with but one objective: to quantify contributions to sea-level change by melting from the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets. It discovered that most of "the action" is on the sloped glaciers around the margins of those ice sheets, ...
Several new missions are nearing launch in the next few years. Slated for 2018 are ICESat-2 and GRACE Follow-On, both of which will contribute to studies of Earth's changing polar ice sheets and more.” The NASA official did not directly address Trump's proposal to shut down the three key climate change ...

Similarly, ICESat-2 will cost more than twice as much to build, launch and operate than its $300 million pricetag in the 2007 report. NASA's budget for GRACE Follow-On remains close to the $450 million but Germany's DLR is providing nearly $100 million in additional funding. To ensure estimates are more ...
