Hydrology variables generated by gravity mapping mission available in Web service

Three new hydrology data variables have been made available as “data rods,” accessible via a Web service at the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC). These data variables are provided in a drought indicator product derived from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission data. The three data variables are

• Groundwater Percentile (gws_inst)
• Root Zone Soil Moisture Percentile (rtzsm_inst)
• Surface Soil Moisture Percentile (sfsm_inst)
