Title:
Signals of extreme weather conditions in Central Europe in GRACE 4-D hydrological mass variations 
Abstract:
We report evidence of observed extreme weather fluctuations in Central Europe by satellite gravimetry during the last five years. Heat waves, droughts, excessive rain, snowfall, and floodings occurred frequently during the study period. Such phenomena are primarily associated with hydrological mass variations that are manifested in the changes of the Earth's gravity field, sensitive to the Ka-band satellite-to-satellite ranging (KBR) measurements onboard of the gravity field mission GRACE twin-s...    »
