Dataset title Monthly time-series data of individual terrestrial water stores including groundwater storage from GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) satellites and GLDAS Land Surface Models for the world's large aquifer systems
Dataset creators Mohammad Shamsudduha, University College London
Richard Taylor, University College London
Dataset theme Geoscientific Information
Dataset abstract Monthly anomalies (August 2002 to July 2016) of total terrestrial water storage (TWS), soil moisture storage (SMS), surface water storage (SWS), snow water storage (SNS), groundwater storage (GWS) derived from an ensemble mean of 3 gridded GRACE products (CSR, JPL-Mascons and GRGS) and an ensemble mean 4 land surface models (CLM, NOAH, VIC and MOSAIC), provided by the NASA’s Global Land Data Assimilation System (GLDAS). Monthly precipitation (CRU) data, derived from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU), were aggregated over each aquifer system. GRACE, GLDAS and CRU datasets are publicly available at the global scale.
