GRACE Related Links

Products and related documentation of the GRACE Science Data System (SDS) can be found at the two GRACE archives:

Alternative GRACE gravity solutions are provided by the following processing centers: 

  • Mascon solutions of the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC)
  • 10-daily GRACE and LAGEOS combined models from the Groupe de Recherche de Geodesie Spatiale (GRGS)
  • Daily, monthly and static models of the Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformation (IGG) of the University Bonn
  • Monthly and static models of the Astronomical Institute (AIUB) of the University of Bern
  • Mass transport models of the Delft Institute for Earth-Oriented Space Research (DEOS)

Additional product help can be found at 

  • the International Centre for Global Earth Models (ICGEM) at GFZ which collects available gravity models, offers web based visualization of the gravity field models and their time variation as well as a service for calculating different functionals of the gravity field models,
  • JPL/Tellus which provides user-friendly data grids for the GRACE SDS gravity products (monthly and time-averaged), with additional post-processing, alone or in combination with other data, and with the most up-to-date corrections or
  • the University of Colorado which provides an interactive tool to display fully corrected, de-striped, monthly grids and hydrologic basin averages from GRACE.

Main GRACE Partners:
