#FYI "Saltwater intrusion" is when ocean saltwater mixes underground with fresh groundwater along the coast, which can impair fresh water for drinking or irrigation. Excessive groundwater pumping and sea level rise can both contribute to saltwater intrusion.
Satellite images show Egyptian farmland being extended into the Sahara Desert in response to urbanization and saltwater intrusion. But now much of that new farmland is being decommissioned and reverting to desert. Learn more at our "Images of Change":…
Current research says the ocean has absorbed 90% of human-caused global warming in recent decades, and the top few meters of this large body of water store as much heat as Earth's entire atmosphere. Get the latest ocean heat data ⬇️ #NationalOceanMonth…
This year has been historic for Yellowstone National Park in more ways than one. Founded in 1872, the park is celebrating its 150th anniversary. It also recently endured catastrophic flooding, with rivers cresting at heights not seen in 100 years.

Additionally, meteorological spring 2022 (March to May) was the 5th-warmest for such period, globally, since modern record-keeping began in 1880, measuring at 0.90°C (1.62°F) above the 1951-1980 baseline average:
UPDATE: May 2022 tied for the 6th-warmest May, globally, since modern record-keeping began in 1880, measuring at 0.82°C (1.48°F) above the 1951-1980 baseline average:

It's the first day of astronomical summer (June 21 to Sept. 22)! Research shows high summertime temperatures are arriving earlier and lasting longer, throwing ecosystems off balance. This visualization shows what shifting seasons might look like up to year 2100. #FirstDayOfSummer
UPDATE: Last month's global average concentration (amount) of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO₂) was about 418 parts per million (ppm), a roughly 50% increase since 1750 due to human activities, like burning fossil fuels and land-use changes.…
On June 10, @NASA’s ECOSTRESS instrument recorded temps on Las Vegas streets exceeding 122ºF (50ºC). The grid of dark red lines in the center of the image shows those intensely hot roads. Green spaces were 23ºF (13ºC) cooler.

For reference, 101 mm (4 inches) of sea level rise is like covering the U.S. in about 16 feet (about 5 meters) of water.
UPDATE: Global average sea level has risen about 101 mm (about 4 inches) since 1993 as a result of human-caused global warming, with recent rates being unprecedented over the past 2,500-plus years.…

#ClimateTalk: What in the world is a baseline? It refers to a long-term average used for comparison purposes. This term is often used with the word "anomaly," which, in the natural sciences, describes departures from averages (what is "normal") for a given time period.

#FYI The abbreviation "ppmv" in the graphic above stands for "parts per million by volume." This refers to the number of carbon dioxide molecules per million molecules of dry air when occupying a certain amount of space.
Decades of research show that global warming is tied primarily to greenhouse gas emissions from the human burning of fossil fuels. When those emissions stop, warming stops within a few years. Download the graphic here:…

During day two of a three-day meeting in La Jolla, the @NASA Sea Level Change Team discussed how to make sea-level science more useful to coastal planners and developers.
A group of these stakeholders, seeking to prepare coastal communities for rising seas in the decades ahead, will meet with the NASA team on Thursday.
UPDATE: Despite a continuing La Niña, April 2022 was the 7th warmest April since 1880, finishing at 0.8°C (1.4°F) above the 1951-1980 baseline. This continues a long-term upward trend since 1880 due to human activities, like burning fossil fuels:
Tuesday’s session included discussion of the upcoming #SWOT satellite, as well as ongoing research projects on forecasting future sea-level rise, improving predictions of melting glaciers, and a variety of publicly accessible sea-level projection tools on
