A joint mission with the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), GRACE-FO will provide critical measurements that will be used together with other data to monitor the movement of water masses across the planet and mass changes within Earth itself. Monitoring changes in ice sheets and glaciers, underground water storage, and sea level provides a unique view of Earth's climate and has far-reaching benefits. The mission is planned to fly at least five years.
Briefing participants will be:
David Jarrett, GRACE-FO program executive in the Earth Science Division at NASA Headquarters
Frank Webb, GRACE-FO project scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Frank Flechtner, GRACE-FO project manager at GFZ
Phil Morton, NASA GRACE-FO project manager at Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Capt. Jennifer Haden, weather officer for the 30th Space Wing at Vandenberg
