New NASA research shows that by releasing heat and moisture through a large hole in sea ice known as a polynya, the exposed ocean fuels the formation of more clouds that trap heat in the atmosphere and hinder the refreezing of new sea ice.

Robert Wolfe is a computer scientist in the Terrestrial Information Systems Branch within the Hydrospheric and Biospheric Sciences Laboratory at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Wolfe has been involved in Earth remote sensing instruments, algorithms and data systems and since 1980 when he received a BS from Bridgewater College, VA. After a decade of developing government and commercial remote sensing projects, he began working with the MODIS instruments, algorithms and data system in the early 1990s. Robert’s current areas of interest are focused on accurate satellite geolocation and developing data systems and algorithms for retrieving terrestrial geophysical parameters. In 2004 he also became a NASA Science Team member for the joint NASA-NOAA-DOD mission (NPP/NPOESS) VIIRS instruments that are MODIS’s follow-on operational instrument series. In 2006 he took on the role of Terra Deputy Project Scientist for Data and then joined the MODIS science team in 2007. Wolfe has over 50 publications (book chapters and scientific, technical, and symposia papers) and is a member of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and the American Geophysical Union.
