    GRACE, Climate Change and Future Needs: A Brief Review
    Author(s): Sandeep N KunduSandeep N Kundu

    Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) is a satellite based observation of the Earth’s gravitational field through time. Earth’s gravitational field has long been studied to infer the densities of underlying rocks for geological characterization at various scales. Convention gravity measurements were done using spring gravimeters on ground. However continuous observations of temporal variations in the Earth’s gravity field have become available at an unprecedented resolution of a few hundreds of kilometres through satellite based sensors. With the launch of GRACE in 2002, the study of the exchange of mass both within the Earth and at its surface in the short temporal interval has become possible. This has huge implications in studying the impacts of earth’s surface processes involving the interaction of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere and biosp.. View More»
