GRACE Follow-on Mission

The 2002 US/German GRACE satellite mission has been a great success. It provided new and unexpected insights into the natural processes of the Earth.

GRACE Follow-on Mission is scheduled for launch in 2017. This project will develop laser ranging technology for the Follow-on mission, and analysis capability for Australia to measure polar melting rates and to monitor its continental water resources, providing insight into the impacts of climate change in our region.
