Short NameANTARCTICA_MASS_TELLUS_GRACE_MASCON_CRI_TIME_SERIES_RL05_V1
DescriptionThis dataset is a time series of mass variability averaged over all of Antarctica. It provides the ice mass changes of Antarctica over time. The mass variability are derived from JPL GRACE Mascon Ocean, Ice, and Hydrology Equivalent Water Height RL05M.1 CRI Filtered Version 2, which can be found at https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/TELLUS_GRACE_MASCON_CRI_GRID_RL05_V2. A more detailed description on the Mascon solution, including the mathematical derivation, implementation of geophysical constraints, and solution validation, please see Watkins et al., 2015, doi: 10.1002/2014JB011547. The mass variability are provided as an ASCII table.
