- Time series of 3D displacements caused by land water storage loading.
The time series are provided in three forms:
- Precomputed time series for 1272 VLBI, GPS, SLR, and DORIS stations.
- Precomputed time series at a regular 2′ × 2′ global grid.
- On-demand online pressure loading computation for an arbitrary point at the Earth.

Two time series of displacements are provided. The first variant is computed using land water storage pressure from the numerical weather model MERRA2 (Reichle et al., 2017) that is available from the GMAO (NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office). The second variant is computed land water storage pressure from the numerical weather model GEOS-FPIT also developed by the GMAO.

Model Resolution Date range Latency MERRA2 0.5 ° × 0.625 ° × 1 hour 1979.01.01 — present 20–50 days GEOS-FPIT 0.5 ° × 0.625 ° × 1 hour 2000.01.01 — present **6–15 hours**

Auxiliary 3D displacements of the center mass of the total Earth with respect to the center mass of the solid Earth without atmosphere caused by atmospheric pressure loading. The sum of this displacement and the displacement wrt of the total mass, is the displacement with respect to the center of solid Earth, i.e. center of figure.
