Conrad and Veit (2016) computed displacements of the geoid (sea
surface) and the ground surface (solid earth
displacement) due to continental groundwater loss
into the oceans, from 1930-2015. The difference
between these is relative sea level change
(geoid-ground displacements). This website
provides the Veit and Conrad (2016) model.
