(GFZ GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam, Helmholtz Centre) On March 17, 2002, the satellite duo GRACE was launched to map the Earth's gravity field more precisely than ever before.

This helps to better understand important trends in the global climate system. A review in the journal Nature Climate Change now presents the mission highlights in climate research.
