Studying sea level rise today will help us better understand its impact on tomorrow. After living in coastal Virginia and seeing the effects of climate change firsthand, Ben Hamlington is now researching sea level rise at NASA JPL. The launch of the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite will provide new and better insights about our Earth’s changing ocean. Get to know the satellite: The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite is part of the Sentinel-6/Jason-CS mission, a collaboration among NASA, ESA, EUMETSAT and NOAA. Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich will launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California no earlier than Nov. 10, 2020.
