Thanks in part to the work of UMass Amherst researchers including Daniela Calzetti, department head and distinguished professor of astronomy, the European Space Agency has shared the first five images from its Euclid space telescope.

R. Mark Leckie and Rob DeConto of the Department of Earth, Geographic and Climate Sciences are part of the Sensitivity of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet to 2 Degrees Celsius of Warming – or SWAIS2C – project.
