GRACE grids destriped, version dpc200711, equivalent water thickness, 2003-2010
Entry ID: GRACE-Tellus-0001

Abstract: Grids of gravity field time change, expressed as changes in mass of a thin layer draping the surface of the Earth, in cm of equivalent water thickness. Over the oceans, they represent changes in bottom pressure, except where geophysical signals (postglacial rebound, strong earthquake displacement) obscure the ocean signal. Grids version dpc200711 are optimized for ocean applications, not land or ... View entire text
