GRACE Sees Groundwater Losses Around the World

NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) has measured significant groundwater depletion around the world in recent years. These animations show trends in total water storage from Jan. 2003 to Dec. 2009 as measured by GRACE, depicting accumulated groundwater losses over time in Australia, California’s Central Valley and the Middle East, and monthly anomalies in total water storage over the same timeframe in the Indian Subcontinent.
