Evaluation of Regional Climate Models using Regionally-Optimized GRACE Mascons in the Amery and Getz ice shelves basins, Antarctica - DATA

Time-series for the regionally-optimized GRACE mascons and the corresponding Mass Budget Method time-series with RACMO2.3p1, RACMO2.3p2, and MAR3.6.41 regional climate models, as described in Mohajerani et al. (2019) are provided as individual ascii files.
