This dataset contains the Antarctic mass time series generated from the GRACE JPL RL05M data. The time series is a 1-dimensional time series of averaged over the Antarctic continent from GRACE expressed in ice mass (Gt). 1 mm of equivalent sea level rise equals 360 Gt of ice mass. The time series starts in May 2002 to present, with a lag of up to 4 months. An animation of spatial variations can be found here. These data are available in ASCII format (Reference: Watkins et al., 2015, doi: 10.1002/2014JB011547.).
Anyone with a computer can take the driver's seat using this new NASA model of sea level rise and ice sheet melt.
Sea level "fingerprints" -- the counter-intuitive effects of melting ice -- leave their mark on the U.S. East Coast.
By measuring bumps and dips in Earth's gravity, the historic twin satellites cast new light on changes in the distribution of water and ice.
