The aim of QuantumFrontiers is to explore new frontiers and techniques for the determination of the Earth's gravitational field its temporal variations by monitoring the global and regional mass redistribution. Understanding the processes relevant for these changes such as the melting of the polar ice sheets, the contribution of water influx to sea level rise, and changes in the hydrological cycle allows the scientific community to better quantify and conceive climate change.
