NASA GRACE Data Hit Big Apple on World Waste Day

The joint NASA/German Aerospace Center Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment mission debuted in New York's Times Square on March 22nd, World Water Day. Netherlands designer, Richard Vijgen developed the animation using GRACE data analyzed by Professor Jay Famiglietti, director of the UC Center for Hydrologic Modeling at the University of California, Irvine. Famiglietti's analyses shows that groundwater is being depleted at rapid rates in many of the worlds' major aquifers.
