DescriptionThis data set contains the monthly Global Ocean Mass Anomalies (goma) since 04/2002, as measured by the GRACE and GRACE Follow-On (G/GFO) satellite missions. The data are averaged over the global ocean domain, at monthly intervals (note: data gaps exist). This file contains the goma time series based on the spherical harmonic gravity fields provided by the G/GFO SDS centers: JPL, CSR, GFZ. The data are frequently updated as new monthly observations are acquired by the GFO mission. The processing of the spherical harmonics gravity field coefficients is as follows: (1) GAD + GSM: the monthly de-aliasing product GAD is added back to the GSM L2 gravity fields; (2) [GSM + GAD] coefficients are averaged over the global ocean with a coastal buffer of 300 km (to avoid land-ocean leakage); (3) the spatial mean of atmospheric loading of the entire global ocean domain is removed (via the GAA L2 data product). A GIA correction using the ICE-6GD model (Peltier et al., 2018) is applied.
