Data image - July 2017 - Land water storage anomalies

This image shows the land water storage anomalies in July 2017, as observed with the GRACE satellites. Blue colors indicate below-average terrestrial water amounts, while red colors show above-average water amounts.

After GRACE-FO launches and science operations commence in early 2018, this page will provide regular (at least monthly) updates from surface mass anomalies as observed with GRACE-FO. These data will inform hydrologists about up-to-date land water storage conditions, provide glaciologists with accurate measurements of glacier and ice sheet mass changes, and allow oceanographers to asses global and regional sea level and ocean current variations.
