NASA scientists used GRACE data to identify regional trends of freshwater movement, and combined that information with data from other satellites, climate models and precipitation measurements to determine the causes of major regional trends in freshwater storage. In these visualizations, the colors represent liquid water equivalent thinckness, while the animated graph overlay represents the terrestrial water storage anomaly.
