GRACE Follow-on (GRACE-FO) is continuing GRACE's legacy of tracking Earth's water movement to monitor changes in underground water storage, the amount of water stored in large lakes and rivers, soil moisture, ice sheets and glaciers, and sea level caused by the addition of water to the ocean. These discoveries provide a unique view of Earth's climate and have far-reaching benefits to society and the world's population.
February 11,2016GRACE data have allowed researchers to identify and quantify, for the first time, how climate-driven increases of liquid water storage on land have affected sea level rise.
December 7,2015To gain a continent-scale overview of the drought in Brazil, Augusto Getirana of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center turned to data from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE).
"I actually didn't plan on being an engineer. I wanted to be a marine biologist. I got a job at the Department of Water and Power in the chemistry lab. I was looking at what the engineers were doing and they seemed to be having an awful good time."
"(Former JPL Director) von Karman said, 'Scientists discover the world that exists. Engineers create the world that never was.' ... That's the most rewarding thing for me."
