Short NameTELLUS_GLDAS-NOAH-3.3_TWS-ANOMALY_MONTHLY
DescriptionThe total land water storage anomalies are aggregated from the Global Land Data Assimilation System (GLDAS) NOAH model. GLDAS outputs land water content by using numerous land surface models and data assimilation. For more information on the GLDAS project and model outputs please visit https://ldas.gsfc.nasa.gov/gldas. The aggregated land water anomalies (sum of soil moisture, snow, canopy water) provided here can be used for comparison against and evaluations of the observations of Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) and GRACE-FO over land. The monthly anomalies are computed over the same days during each month as GRACE and GRACE-FO data, and are provided on monthly 1 degree lat/lon grids in NetCDF format.
