Understanding Sea Level

Key Indicators

Antarctica

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.).
