Understanding Sea Level

Key Indicators

Greenland

This dataset contains the Greenland mass trend generated from the GRACE JPL RL05M. The time series is a 1-dimensional time series of globally averaged Water Height Anomalies (WHA) from GRACE expressed in equivalent water mass (Gt). 1 mm sea level equivalent equals 360 Gt. It 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 (Reference: Watkins et al., 2015, doi: 10.1002/2014JB011547).
