ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (Greenland_Ice_Sheet_cci): Greenland Gravimetric Mass Balance from GRACE data, derived by DTU Space, v2.2
This dataset provides a Gravimetric Mass Balance (GMB) product for the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS), generated by DTU Space, based on monthly snapshots of the Earth’s gravity field provided by the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) and its follow-on satellite mission (GRACE-FO). The product relies on monthly gravity field solutions (L2) of release 06 generated at the Center for Space Research (University of Texas at Austin) and spans the period from April 2002 through August 2020.
The GMB product covers the full GRACE mission period (April 2002 - June 2017) and is extended by means of GRACE-FO data starting from June 2018, thus including 200 monthly solutions. The mass change estimation is based on inversion method developed at DTU Space.
Two different types of products are available. First, the gridded mass trends product is comprised of ice mass change trends for cells of equal area with 50 km resolution covering the whole GIS. Second, the mass change time series product provides time series of integrated mass changes for 8 drainage basins and the entire GIS.

|Title||Derivation of the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (Greenland_Ice_Sheet_cci): Greenland Gravimetric Mass Balance from GRACE data (CSR RL06), derived by DTU Space, v2.2|
|Abstract||Estimates of mass change have been derived based on inversion methods developped at DTU Space. The underlying L2 monthly gravity field solutions used in the derivation were generated by the Center for Space Research (University of Texas at Austin) primarily using K-Band ranging, accelerometer and GPS observations acquired by the GRACE and GRACE-FO twin-satellite missions.
