PODAAC-GRGIA-05J10

Glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) is an ongoing geophysical process and is measured by gravimetry satellites like GRACE and GRACE-FO. To isolate signals of contemporary surface mass loss in the cumulative satellite gravimetry measurements, contemporary GIA rates are computed and subtracted from the satellite gravimetry observations. The GIA correction models provided here are filtered such that they are compatible with Level-3 post-processing filters applied to GRACE(-FO) data as indicated in the [product_id]. In this way, user can effectively assess the impact of the applied GIA correction, and substitute different GIA models should that be desired. This GIA dataset is mapped into 0.5-degree global grid compatible with the JPL mascon solution, provided in netCDF format.
