    GRACE: RL06 reprocessing completed

    The GRACE Project's data centers (JPL, CSR, GFZ) have released the first batch of reprocessed RL06 Level-2 data (spanning 04/2002 through 08/2016). The corresponding grids of Level-3 data (terrestr... more
    The GRACE Project's data centers (JPL, CSR, GFZ) have released the first batch of reprocessed RL06 Level-2 data (spanning 04/2002 through 08/2016). The corresponding grids of Level-3 data (terrestrial water storage, ocean bottom pressure), as well as ancillary files (e.g., geocenter, GIA) are currently being assessed and will be released by the end of August, 2018. less

Top Data Sets

  • JPL Global Land / Ocean Mascons (RL06M.MSCNv01)

    JPL's global mascons (land water storage & ocean bottom pressure) from GRACE are updated monthly, and are provided on 0.5-degree global grid. Current version: RL06M.MSCNv01
  • GRACE Tellus LAND Grids

    Land water storage from GRACE is updated monthly, and is provided on 1-degree global grids.
  • Interactive Data Browsers

    The data browsers allow the interactive retrieval of GRACE Land data over river basins, as well as the evaluation of long-term trends and mean seasonal amplitudes. Courtesy of U. of Colorado / Boulder.

GRACE Follow-On

Launching in 2017, GRACE Follow-on (GRACE-FO) will continue GRACE's legacy of tracking Earth's water movement to monitor changes in underground water storage, the amount of water stored in large lakes and rivers, soil moisture, ice sheets and glaciers, and sea level caused by the addition of water to the ocean. These discoveries provide a unique view of Earth's climate and have far-reaching benefits to society and the world's population.
