GRACE, the US/German Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment, was conceived, proposed and implemented under UTCSR leadership, with many staff and students over the years contributing to engineering and science data analysis. Since their launch in 2002, the twin GRACE satellites have revolutionized our understanding of mass transport in the Earth system using time-resolve satellite gravimetry. The trend now continues with UTCSR engagement in the GRACE Follow-On mission, launched in May 2018. Read about the contributions of GRACE and GRACE Follow-On satellites to the understanding of climate change in a review published in the April 15, 2019 issue of Nature Climate Change.
