Operation IceBridge Aerial Views of Polar Ice (2010)
PDF icon 2010IceBridgeICE Postcard.pdf

Send a "note from the field" with a postcard featuring an image from Operation IceBridge, NASA’s six-year airborne mission to monitor Earth’s polar ice sheets, glaciers, and sea ice. Display the front of the card to showcase a spectacular image from the mission. Turn the card over to read factoids and learn about the ice at Earth’s polar regions -- a major factor in the global climate system. Data collected during IceBridge is helping scientists maintain polar observations between NASA’s Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat), which stopped collecting science data in 2009, and ICESat-2, planned for late 2015. The mission is also yielding an unprecedented 3D view of targeted regions of interest, such as the dramatically retreating Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland.

Ozone Hole: Through the Years 1970-2011 (2012)
PDF icon 2012Ozone_Hole_Lenticular_508_Compliant.pdf

This card shows the monthly-averaged total ozone over Antarctica in October of 1970, 1979, 1984, 1989, 2000, and 2011. Also, find out what could have happened to the Earth’s ozone layer by 2063.
